Description

24 HOUR POSTURAL MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP - Clinical Benefits of Early Implementation

FREE Clinical Workshop facilitated by three of Australia’s leading educators. An introduction to the concepts of 24 hour posture management including: Risk identification, evidence and knowledge to guide current practice of positioning and practical resources to support realistic goal setting for your clients.

  • When, how and why should we provide 24-hour programmes to children and adults?

  • Where is your client when he/she is not on his/her wheelchair?

  • How do we assess clients to implement a 24-hour posture management plan and available equipment solutions?

  • What are the clinical justifications for alternative seating, lying and standing equipment?

If you have a hard time answering these questions and you want to know more about the subject, this workshop is for you!

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn how the implementation of a 24-hour Posture Management programme may prevent body shape deterioration and even restoration.

  • Learn how to prioritise equipment based on your client needs and goals: Where does he/she spend the most part of his/her day? What strategies are there for balancing postural and functional goals?

  • Understand how to set up a plan when symmetry does not lead to functional outcomes. Understand what you need to add to a standard MAT evaluation to incorporate standing and lying.

  • Recognise how the provision of supported seating, lying and standing equipment benefits clients, parents and care givers.

  • Discuss the latest research on abducted standing frames.

  • Develop practical skills to put the knowledge presented into clinical practice.
