Lifestyle Redesign® Certification and Continuing Education

Please Note
Lifestyle Redesign continuing education opportunities are still under development and information on this page is subject to change. These opportunities are anticipated to launch in 2024.

The Lifestyle Redesign Knowledge Mobilization Initiative (LR-KMI), launched in 2022, aims to promote greater synergies across research, education, and practice in Lifestyle Redesign, and to develop resources and infrastructure to enable occupational therapists and health system partners to integrate Lifestyle Redesign into diverse practice settings.

As a result of these efforts, Chan is proud to be developing continuing education (CE) opportunities, including the CE courses offered as part of the Lifestyle Redesign Certification.

The Lifestyle Redesign Certification is a robust training program that prepares occupational therapy practitioners to provide clinical services and conduct research using the Lifestyle Redesign intervention framework.

Occupational therapy practitioners who complete the training program and related requirements will be eligible to become certified in Lifestyle Redesign. The Lifestyle Redesign certification program is anticipated to launch in Fall 2024.
