Demonstrating competencies in goal setting in a person centred care environment, you'll have experience in selecting appropriate exercise programs for older individuals including those with impairments and frailty. You'll possess excellent project management, planning, time management and leadership skills, and be able to collaborate in case management situations with others to make effective decisions and problem solve.
