Kinesiologists: Your Human Movement Specialists
We Can Help You Feel Better, Move Better And Live Better!
Kinesiologists are human movement specialists who help you feel better, move better and live better. Our organization, the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists (BCAK), supports kinesiology and those who want to live healthy and active lives.
BCAK and You!
The BCAK, and our members, effectively contribute to achieving a balance between sustainable health cost management and proactive health management.
We support identifying effective strategies to maintain and improve, a sustainable health care system for British Columbians, while managing quality and cost of delivery. Kinesiologists are effective interdisciplinary team members in many healthcare programs today.
As an association, we are focused on raising awareness, understanding and acceptance of the integral role that Kinesiologists can provide in the health and wellness context of prevention, maintenance and rehabilitation.
Our members are committed to working within a defined Scope of Practice that supports the provincial health care mandate, and our members are also committed to ongoing professional development to enable the delivery of best service practices.
