Event description

Description

A Recovery Partners Educational Seminar | New South Wales


** Please note these sessions are for industry professionals only **

Recovery from injury is multifactorial and becomes ever more complicated the longer a person has a given injury or condition. Relying therefore, on the diagnosis to determine factors such as recovery timeframes and treatment success and the overall track of a given condition is largely inaccurate when compared to prognosis mapping.

When considering prognosis, it is critical comorbidities are considered given the negative association it represents to the health and wellbeing of the diagnosed individual. The presence of comorbid diseases may impact a host of factors pertinent to better health including detection accuracy, treatment, functional independence, and mental health to call out a few. Notably, chronic disease and comorbidities are becoming increasingly common throughout Australia with greater than 50% of the population reporting to have a chronic condition.

The esteemed Steven Kamper will be leading our seminar on Prognosis over Diagnosis. Using an evidence based approach, Steven will break down the limitations of focusing on diagnosis as opposed to prognosis in injury management models.

Erin is joining us from Endeavour Energy who is leading the way in workplace wellness, health and safety practices. She will be providing insight into real examples and giving evidence based strategies to support the session.
