About Glebe Physiotherapy Virtual Care
Access to healthcare services can make all the difference in the world, which is why Glebe Physiotherapy is constantly innovating to improve access to care and provide people the care they need. If in-person services aren’t available in your area or if you’re unable to get to the clinic, you can now connect remotely with a Glebe Physiotherapy clinician through Virtual Care, which uses video conference and/or the telephone to provide services at a distance.
Our virtual services are easy to use, private, and, most of all, convenient. Glebe Physiotherapy Virtual Care:
- Removes accessibility and/or mobility barriers
- Connects you with clinicians regardless of location
- Protects your privacy through safeguards and robust policies
- Reduces travel time while still ensuring you receive quality care
Our Virtual Care services include:
- Vestibular Rehab
- Concussion Rehab
- Exercise Prescription
- Occupational Therapy
- Registered Dietician
- Functional Capacity Evaluations
Our Virtual Care services are continuing to grow. Contact us for more information.
How it works
Before your appointment, you will receive (via email or text) a link to an appointment session through a video conference platform that facilitates real-time transmission of visual information between you and your clinician.
Any documentation that you need to review and complete prior to your appointment will be sent to you ahead of time.
If at any time during the session either you or your clinician feels that using electronic communications is limiting the effectiveness or quality of the services provided, we will look to schedule an in-person appointment with you.
How Virtual Care differs from in-person services
The services are largely the same. Our clinicians are required to meet the same regulatory and legislative requirements and adhere to their respective Standards of Practice and Code of Conduct, just as they are for in-person services.
Glebe Physiotherapy also has strict privacy and information security policies and procedures in place with regard to managing information when using electronic communication technologies.
