Exclusive clinical seating events aim to boost healthcare professionals’ knowledge
Invacare has announced a dedicated Think Clinical Seating educational programme, aimed at intermediate level healthcare professionals, which will be hosted in June 2019 at venues in Nottingham and Swindon.
Discussing best practice guidelines on the ins and outs of back supports, management of skin integrity and different approaches, and conclusions from clinical evaluations with CPD accreditation pending, the full‐day events with industry experts are a must for healthcare professionals.
Presenters Sharon Sutherland‐Pratt PT MISCP MNAPTA Owner/Manager at Seating Solutions LLC, Ezequiel F. SILVA Occupational Therapist and Group Product Manager at Invacare EMEA, and Carlos Kramer International Educator at Vicair will enable delegates to:
- List the goals of seating and mobility as they relate to the seat cushion and back support
- Explain the skin risk and postural analysis steps necessary in hands‐on evaluations
- Discuss how assessment findings translate into seat cushion and back support product parameters
- Ask four objective questions related to skin integrity and positioning properties of wheelchair seat cushions and back supports using a simple checklist for each
These exclusive events include an exhibition of Invacare and Vicair seating products as well as offering networking opportunities for professionals in the field of seating & positioning.
