The Physiotherapy Department at BC Women's Hospital is the largest hospital-based obstetrical physiotherapy department in Canada. The primary role of the dedicated staff is to provide the best possible obstetrical care to antepartum and peripartum women in this British Columbia tertiary care centre.
We provide services on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Physiotherapists receive their training as part of a University degree program. A high level of staff competency is ensured by our enthusiastic participation in continuing education, the promotion of evidence-based clinical assessments and treatments, and the pursuit of research opportunities.
The College of Physical Therapist of British Columbia (CPTBC) is the regulatory body established by the provincial government to protect the public by regulating the practice of physical therapy.
The physiotherapists are also directly affiliated with the University of British Columbia and provide clinical instruction to students.
