UHN’s annual Rally for Rehab, sponsored by BMO, is back for another year. This year, the virtual event is taking place from March 31 – April 4, 2022 across Canada, in support of the world renowned Toronto Rehab Institute. Participants will challenge themselves with a distance and a fundraising goal with the common purpose to collectively move 10,000 km - the distance from the Equator to the North Pole! Building upon last year’s success, Rally for Rehab will continue as an ‘all movement’ event meaning participants are encouraged to choose a form of movement that challenges them. Walk, run, wheel, bike, swim or ski – all abilities were invited to participate!

Thursday, September 15, 2021

The Spinal Cord Injury Implementation and Evaluation Quality Care Consortium is aiming to help standardize best practices in high-priority areas so that patients with spinal cord injuries can receive equitable, high-quality support no matter where they receive rehabilitation. This initiative has been particularly successful at the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre in the domain on sexual health, where patients, like Richard Gordon, are receiving education on how to navigate sex as a paraplegic.
