MONTREAL, April 26 /CNW Telbec/ - The pursuit of excellence is an important value for the Constance-Lethbridge Rehabilitation Centre (CLRC). It is with great pleasure that the CLRC announces that the occupational therapy team of its Driving Evaluation and Vehicle Adaptation Program has been awarded the 2010 prix Ginette-Théorêt by the Ordre des ergothérapeutes du Québec (OEQ).
The OEQ awards the prix Ginette-Théorêt to an occupational therapist or a group of occupational therapists who distinguish themselves in their clinical practice during the last two years. The award highlights their exceptional personal qualities, their use and support of occupational therapy skills in their sector and emphasizes their involvement and actions.
"We are very proud of what they have accomplished" says Patrick Murphy-Lavallée, Executive Director of the CLRC. "The prix Ginette-Théorêt is a public recognition by their peers and by the OEQ as individuals who are committed to offering the highest level of occupational therapy services to the Driving Evaluation and Vehicle Adaptation Program's clients."
The group was chosen for the prize based upon certain aspects of their performance. These included an important commitment to their sector as well as their dynamism, leadership, creativity and human qualities demonstrated each and every day. They have also demonstrated their engagement to the CLRC by participating in various internal and external committees, teaching at McGill University's School of Physical & Occupational Therapy, supervising student interns and contributing on a regular basis to research projects and the publication of articles in scientific journals. The team has also made it a priority to keep their skills up to date so that they can offer the CLRC's clients the latest clinical treatments available.
The occupational therapists of the Driving Evaluation and Vehicle Adaptation Program make up a dedicated and conscientious team that use proven evidence in their professional practice and treat their clients and family members with tact, empathy and respect.
