Kids Physio Group recognizes that our unique team and diverse experience have positioned us well to support other clinic owners in achieving clinical, operational, and cultural excellence. Both our CEO, Laura Patrick, and Director of Growth & Operations, Carly Waring are passionate about the direction of the allied health profession, and have firmly established themselves as industry leaders who can provide valuable insights and education to other professionals. We are exploring opportunities to prioritize offering both coaching and consultation to those who feel alignment with what we’re doing, but are not pediatric physiotherapists looking to open a Kids Physio Group franchise location.

Independent Contractor to Employee (Commission or Salary) Transition Support

Do you need support transitioning your contractors to employees?

Kids Physio transitioned their physiotherapists from independent contractors to employees in 2018, and have successfully hired and grown under this model. In the years since we have supported other clinics in doing the same and they have had the same success. 

Are you interested in doing the same? Get in touch! We offer consultation services and have documents and systems to help smooth the transition.

Educational Courses

Learn more about Kids Physio’s Best Practices for Returning to the Clinic Embodia Course.

Like most businesses, KPG was blindsided by the COVID-19 crisis in March and made the challenging decision to close all of their clinics down on Sunday, March 15th. After shutting down all operations for several days, they re-opened with telehealth on March 19th and were, fortunately, able to re-hire staff over the following weeks.

Though it would be months before returning to treatment inside their clinics, Kids Physio Group’s leadership team began to research and prepare for re-opening as soon as systems for telehealth were completed. They read physiotherapy, massage, and even cosmetology best practices as they were released across Canada, and began to create their own set of policies and procedures that would ensure they- and their incredible team- would feel comfortable returning to in-person work when the government deemed it appropriate to do so.

In this course, you will have access to the same training that all employees at Kids Physio Group have access to. These are measures that we have chosen to take at our British Columbia and Ontario (pending any additional recommendations from the province or college) clinics and should be reviewed and compared against your own regulating bodies before being put into practice.

Returning to the clinic during the COVID-19 crisis can be scary. Science, best practices, and recommendations are changing every day, and that can make it overwhelming to keep up and make fact-based decisions. We hope that this course can give you a little bit of reassurance, and support you in creating your own policies and best practices for returning to practice in your clinic.
