Complex Pediatric Rehabilitation Team

The Complex Pediatric Rehabilitation Team provides on-site (ACH) and outreach rehabilitation intervention for children, youth and families who have complex needs that prevent them from being able to access outpatient services at Alberta Children's Hospital. This service provides short-term, goal-oriented episodes of rehabilitation care to support families in getting to a place where they can successfully access and participate in outpatient services.

When a significant change in function or health status occurs, some families have difficulty accessing healthcare services for their child due to unstable or unpredictable medical, psychosocial, sensory or engagement factors.

Our services include:

  • collaborative goal-setting
  • comprehensive assessment and recommendations
  • intensive patient / family-driven rehabilitation intervention
  • care planning support
  • link to other specialty resources
  • staff education and coaching
  • support for transition between care settings
