T - New Perspectives From E-Scan

Tipping Point – Moving from Outbreak to Epidemic Through conduct of the E-Scan, “outbreaks” of exemplary practice were pinpointed in spotlight best practice organizations, throughout the country. As rehabilitation professionals, we can convert these outbreaks into an epidemic of excellence. This first, national look at the Canadian SCI rehabilitation landscape is intended to be a tipping point. A tipping point, described by Malcolm Gladwell is “…that magic moment when an idea, trend or behaviour crosses a threshold, tips and spreads like wildfire”. Exponential change can be created by harnessing the passion, commitment and expertise of rehabilitation professionals in these spotlight best practice organizations, and finding strategies to infiltrate other SCI rehabilitation sites. Mutual engagement is necessary to: • Invest in Science • Reward Best Practice • Force Polic y Chan ge. We trust these key messages will prompt stakeholders to focus their collective efforts on creating services (unencumbered by the challenges and gaps identified) that ensure the best possible rehabilitation outcomes, for individuals with SCI, by 2020.
