 Over the past number of years, he gained extensive experience working in various medical settings, from acute hospitals to physical rehabilitation units as a social worker and later, in the physical rehabilitation hospital as a case manager.

A Rheumatological condition in someone's knee

Pierre has a special interest in providing medical social work intervention to patients diagnosed with an acute/chronic disease. The biopsychosocial model of Dr George Libman Engel (10 December 1913 – 26 November 1999) often serves as the theoretical basis of his social work practice and Pierre therefore believes that collaboration between doctor and social worker is critical to ensure improvement in the patient’s quality of life. Pierre practices holistically and encourages the patient to involve their significant others during the therapeutic process.
