FIREFLY Children & Youth Development services
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine collaborates with FIREFLY Child and Youth Development Services to fill new Speech-Language Pathologist clinical education opportunities in Keewatin-Patricia District FIREFLY and Kenora Chiefs Advisory have partnered to fill five new full-time Speech-Language Pathology positions through Jordan’s Principal funding. The Northern Ontario School of Medicine in turn partnered with FIREFLY to facilitate clinical externships for Speech-Language Pathology graduate level students. FIREFLY Children and Youth Development Services, located in Kenora, Ontario, provides services to children and families living in the district of Kenora and area as well as multiple far north, fly-in communities. Through the collaboration, FIREFLY and NOSM are hoping to expand service to better serve children living in rural and remote areas, specifically Indigenous communities.
Learners from the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario are participating in two separate, eight-week placements from March to June 2018. The new placements offer a unique clinical education opportunity that will prepare learners for rural- remote clinical practice unique to the needs and service delivery models used in Northwestern Ontario, according to Jackie Hummelbrunner, a Speech-Language Pathologist who will supervise the learners on their placements. “This initiative is strongly focused on providing learners with the experiences necessary to develop clinical and management skills specific to serving our most remote and unique communities,” said Hummelbrunner. “While supporting student clinicians to develop their skills, our community benefits from ‘extra hands and minds’ that help us address the needs of those waiting on waitlists for service while we work to staff these newly funded positions. The
additional benefit is hopeful recruitment of these bright clinicians who answered the call to train in the North.”
Over the course of their placement, learners will have the opportunity to gain the experience and training in: cultural competency/awareness; interprofessional collaboration; telepractice;
developmental speech and language formal assessment and intervention; intervention planning, community & client specific goal setting and delivery; and community travel to local and far north
communities. Learners will have also had the opportunity to work with professionals unique to Indigenous communities to understand roles and gain skills to work collaboratively with a wide variety of professionals.
The Rehabilitation Studies Program at NOSM has developed Preceptor 101 sessions to help increase the number of clinical teachers in the North. The sessions are designed for health professionals including audiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech-language pathologists who are interested in becoming preceptors, or have experience but want to improve their knowledge of best practices.
Northern Passages is a quarterly publication which conveys news about NOSM’s multi-faceted activities. Its broad coverage informs and entertains with detailed commentary on program development, conferences, profiles, and other information germane to the School and its Northern stakeholders.
