Canadian Military Family Services Program (MFSP) Run by the Military Family Services

As you begin working with Canadian Forces military personnel you develop a picture of not just the member’s occupational needs, strength and deficits but, often, the needs of spouse, caregiver, children and even friends and extended family. We all know that the needs of the family (in whatever form) can directly impact on the military member – this is true for all the populations occupational therapists work with.

As you develop your assessment plan pre-first-visit or organize your thoughts as you write your plan forward, we invite you to consider the excellent programs and services offered by the Canadian Military Family Services Program (MFSP) Run by the Military Family Services [https://www.cfmws.com/en/AboutUs/MFS/Pages/default.aspx], MFS are located across Canada.
