This online course will focus on strategies to weather the second (and third) wave, how to optimize telerehabilitation and communication with patients, and practical strategies you can implement right away.


The anticipated second wave of COVID - 19 is approaching and rightly stoking fears in the minds of clinicians, clinic owners, students, new grads, and patients across Canada.

Whether physiotherapy clinics are considered an essential service or not, how are you and your patients going to weather another wave of the pandemic?

With time on your side before the second wave, you can develop a practical strategy to keep your schedule open and weather whatever this pandemic throws at you.

Join Darryl Yardley, physiotherapist, and founder of Mentorship Bootcamp, on this online course where he’ll discuss how virtual care can be the viable strategy in your contingency plan.

Top concerns we will address in this online course:

  • What to do as patient cancellations increase
  • How to manage patients who have to quarantine with their kids
  • What happens if you have to quarantine!
  • I'm a new grad and resident! How am I supposed to get a job in this climate?!

We will also discuss:

  • Different strategies to continue to assess and successfully treat your patients in case we go into lockdown.
  • How to optimize telerehabilitation and communicate with your patients
  • How to market your services during the second wave
  • New grad strategies to work as a physiotherapy resident until the practical exam is offered
