Our Core Values
First and foremost, we trust. We wholeheartedly believe in the reliability, ability, truth or strength of someone or something. We trust in each other first, to foster and support collaboration and connection amongst our peers and our clients.
We always act with integrity. We act in an ethical way and according to ethical principles. We tell the truth, we show compassion, we are open and honest, we are dependable and follow through on commitments to one another, we are vulnerable, we hold ourselves accountable and we admit when we are wrong.
Connection is at the heart of who we are, how we practice and how we show up for each other and our clients; it’s the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship (Brown, B, 2013). Our personal experiences connect us and form the foundation of a successful therapeutic alliance.
We value a growth mindset. We work hard, we persevere, and we view challenges and failures as opportunities for growth. To us, feedback is a gift because everyday it encourages us to do better, to be better. We promise to keep growing to support our clients, to promote pelvic health knowledge translation and continue to push the boundaries of clinical excellence and increase access to exceptional quality clinical care.
Empowerment is a multidimensional social process that helps people gain control over their own lives. Strength, confidence, control & freedom are all possible outcomes of empowerment. As rehabilitation professionals, we empower through communication, knowledge translation, the promotion of self-care, ethical and sound decision-making through a supportive and encouraging lens.
