Clinical Education Program

The Clinical Education Program assists in the enhancement of staff competencies in professional development to improve their overall capacity to support children and families with mental health issues. As part of CASA’s role in the health and wellness of children and families in the community, we also work with community stakeholders in the sharing of resources and knowledge transfer.

 

Clinical Education provides onsite and offsite knowledge sharing through presentations, materials, research, program planning, and development. Clinical Education works closely with CASA’s Leadership team, Occupational Health, Patient Safety, First Nations Team, working group for Cultural and Diversity, and with the Human Resources divisions.
