Respiratory Therapy in Canada | Confronting COVID-19 - AARC

The Canadian RT experiences through the pandemic were shared through an article in yesterday’s AARC News. We are proud of the incredible work respiratory therapists do every day, and particularly as this fourth wave continues. And, we are proud to share news of this work with our international colleagues.

Andrew West, EdD, MAppSc(Resp), DipPH, FCSRT, gives us a deep dive into the timeline of COVID-19 in Canada and how RTs have made it through.
