Congratulations to Seneca College’s Therapeutic Recreation Graduate Certificate program, the newest post-secondary education program to successfully meet the criteria of the #TRO #CurriculumReview for #Registration Eligibility. Last week, TRO’s Executive Director Rozalyn Werner-Arcé presented the confirmation of status to students and faculty, and also highlighted the opportunities of TRO membership to the group. (She is pictured here along with Gary Galbraith, Academic Chair of Public Safety, Recreation and Environmental Studies, Seneca College.) “A successful Curriculum Review speaks to the commitment Seneca is making to its students to ensure they are ready to enter practice upon graduation and eligible for their Registration with TRO once they have earned all the necessary PCCs. A win for the students, the school, the profession and most importantly, future clients/patients/residents. Congratulations to all!” --Rozalyn Werner-Arcé.
Today marks the debut of International #SocialPrescribingDay, an initiative led by the UK-based Social Prescribing Network. Social prescribing is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. Recognizing that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health.
