Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist (OT) and Trusted Assessor, in association with Theraposture, will be delivering a seminar at Kidz to Adultz South entitled: ‘Becoming confident in prescribing cot beds for better sleep hygiene, client care and moving and handling.’

The Kidz exhibitions, organised by Disabled Living, provide a unique opportunity to see the latest products and services for disabled children and young adults.

The showcase includes a series of CPD accredited seminars for professionals and families which cover a range of issues relevant to independent and assisted living. By attending these sessions, healthcare professionals can gain valuable hours to their CPD portfolio and discover the latest educational material that assists their clients.

At Kidz South, Shaun Masters, OT, will be presenting the care cot seminar in Seminar Room 2 at 10:30am.

Synopsis

The seminar will explore the difficulties faced with prescribing paediatric sleeping solutions. It will explore the wider implications on health and day-to-day function whilst examining our nature to care for others.

Topics will also highlight future-proofing for a child’s needs as they progress, become older, heavier and stronger and how this has an impact on the parents/carers abilities. Parents still want to hold, lift and nurture their child, but is this sustainable when looking at safe moving and handling?

Learning outcomes

  1. Have a greater understanding of the wider implication on achieving good sleep hygiene
  2. Prescribe the most appropriate cot bed for your client
