The CPSIA is suitable for a wide range of professionals who provide client-centred healthcare to people with arthritis across a continuum of settings and stage of disease. (The program does not address childhood arthritis). Graduates include Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners, many of whom have successfully completed the Advanced Clinician Practitioner in Arthritis Care (ACPAC) program.
The program emphasizes best practice assessment and management techniques as applied to the most common types of inflammatory arthritis.
Upon completion of the program, the participant will have the skills to effectively recognize and report on the health status of clients with inflammatory and osteoarthritis and to formulate an appropriate management plan.
