Shanna Thompson – Physiotherapist in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit

May is National Physiotherapy Month! This week we are highlighting some of the awesome IWK physiotherapy team that are proving #PhysioCanHelp!

Shanna Thompson is the physiotherapist for the PICU and Kid’s Rehab. She is passionate about her profession and the role she plays on several teams throughout the IWK. She has found her niche in the world of cardiorespiratory physiotherapy and is currently leading the development of an IWK PICU Early Mobility program!

Outside of the IWK, her enthusiasm for physiotherapy continues, as she volunteers her time with Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapy, both as a board member and Chair of the Practice Standards Committee.
