Vancouver Regional Pediatric Team

The Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and the Vancouver Board of Education have developed services for students with nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy needs. The level and source of support varies with  the type of health care the student requires. 

The goal of the Vancouver Regional Pediatric Team is to help children living in Vancouver to lead active, healthy lives in their schools and communities.

Support may include:

  • Assessing the needs of a child

  • Developing individualized Health Care Plans to guide staff in caring for students in the classroom environment who have complex health needs

  • Training support staff to provide direct care to students

  • Supporting students in accessing and participating in the school environment

Referral Process:

Students are eligible for this service when they have health care needs or physical disabilities. Referral for service can be made through School-Based Team and/or nurse.
