Leslie explained the importance of this new position at Grandview: “The launch of the PPL role, as well as the Discipline Lead assignments, supports Grandview’s Strategic Initiative of Interprofessional Practice Excellence. We can better support our clinicians in their evidence-based practices, and this benefits our clients, families, staff and colleagues in other children’s rehabilitation services provincially and nationally.”
Now Jenn has two roles at Grandview: half-time PPL and half-time Occupational Therapist.
As PPL, Jenn will be responsible for ensuring that our clinicians provide quality service, and she will facilitate the clinicians' participation in collaborative best practices and research activities across all of the programs and locations of Grandview Children's Cente. The PPL will act as a resource to clinicians, and to the Clinical Management Team.
Each professional discipline at Grandview has also selected a Discipline Lead (DL). The DL is exceptionately familiar with their respective College Guidelines, is a practice resource to their peers, and works with the PPL to support interprofessional collaborative best practices:
Audiology: Aynsley Warden
Occupational Therapy: Rachna Chaudhary
Physiotherapy: Marj Kennelly
Social Work: Stephanie Stoddard
Speech-Language Pathology: Aynsley Warden
Grandview's Executive Director, Lorraine Sunstrum-Mann, adds her thoughts about the new PPL position: "The introduction of the PPL role, in concert with the DL roles, will support our fantastic Grandview clinicians to continue to seek innovation in their practice, which is a benefit to Grandview Kids and their families."
Please join us in congratulating Jenn on her new and exciting role at Grandview - and congratulations also to Aynsley, Marj, Rachna and Stephanie!
