Getting to the core of the problem:
Critical steps that are essential when carrying out positioning and seating assessments regardless of the complexity of the client
Do we know what we are looking for?
How to understand the information we find and how to translate the findings into optimal solutions
This interactive program will take participants from interdisciplinary teams through the journey that we are faced with every day as we are tasked with recommending optimal seating and positioning with or without mobility solutions for our clients.
The concept of an ideal sitting footprint will be reviewed. We will look at common symptoms that we see every day in the seated client and ask ourselves if we are really identifying the cause of the problem or simply reacting to the associated symptoms.
We will discuss the 3 top questions that need answers related to identifying clients at high risk of seated related pressure injuries. Case stories as well as interactive discussion will be utilised to navigate our way through this critical assessment and discovery process.
Whether you are new to this positioning-seating –mobility world or have been associated with the prescription of positioning solutions for many years, this educational opportunity will leave you refreshed and excited about the possibilities.
Day One is Beginner/Intermediate level with Day Two taking you on to more advanced concepts...
