ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT

The RTSO is once again bringing together respiratory therapy leaders or their designate from hospitals across Ontario. The changing health care system is providing opportunities for respiratory therapists to adapt and continue to make a difference in patient care.

Through this forum, we intend to:

  • Share information related to health system transformation and Patients First implementation
  • Showcase products and services related to respiratory therapy practice
  • Provide a networking opportunity for hospital-based respiratory therapy leaders to share issues, experiences, and lessons learned.
  • Solicit participants input to inform the RTSO’s supporting role related to advocacy, member education and committee work.
