·         Group based and 1:1 education, including education specific to pain neuroscience

·         Collaboration within an interdisciplinary team

·         Communication with various stakeholders, including employers, referrers and community healthcare providers

·         Participation in program development and quality improvement initiatives

  Qualifications 

·         Registered and in good standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of BC

·         18 months experience working in an interdisciplinary pain program is an asset, though not required as mentorship is available

·         Experience working within an insurance-based, return-to-work focused rehabilitation setting

·         Excellent clinical skills, including strong communication, capacity to build therapeutic alliance and work as a collaborative team player.

 Compensation

·         Competitive salary commensurate with experience
