The Prosthetic and Orthotics Association of British Columbia (POABC) has been the provincial association for British Columbia since 1974. We represent Prosthetists, Orthotists, clinical practitioners, P&O technicians, clinical practitioners students, and facility owners/managers. We believe that promoting awareness is a vital component of providing exceptional one-one clinical care. In order to receive appropriate care, clients must understand the services available to British Columbian residents. Many people in our community require prosthetic and orthotic treatment due to limb loss or physical impairments.
The POABC strives to offer patients high-quality care from the beginning of the treatment process. We provide patient assessments, fittings and long-term follow-up care and solutions tailored to each individual patient. POABC is constantly striving to improve our treatment programs, professional expertise and educational standards. We strongly believe in advocating for our patients and providing the highest quality of life by taking an active role in provincial funding, education and research.
