Specialist manufacturer of wash and dry toilets, Closomat has developed an online learning series for occupational therapists (OTs) in coordination with The OT Service.

These ‘Learn and Lunch’  informative 30-minute sessions are designed to help OTs to enhance their practice and support their professional development, by focussing on a range of “hot topics” that OTs are currently discussing in the area of assisted toileting.

Each webinar will comprise of an initial pre-recorded presentation, featuring product demonstrations where applicable, followed by a live Q&A between senior OTs from The OT Service.

The first session is ‘Future-proofing to accommodate changing needs’, on Wednesday 27th April at 12.00 pm.

It will cover how OTs can assess long-term needs on an initial assessment; how future-proofing links with recommendations made after an assessment; compatibility of accessories, such as shower chairs; and further general advice around this issue.

Stephen Edwards, Head of Sales and Marketing at Closomat, said: “We’ve seen through our very successful webinar programme, which has been running now for around 18 months, that there is a huge thirst for knowledge amongst OTs, particularly in the area of toileting.

“After consulting with OTs, we recognised that there was a role for punchier sessions, to complement the more in-depth webinars, which could be attended during a lunch hour, for example.”

Future sessions currently planned are ‘Who benefits from a wash and dry toilet’, ‘How to use a wash and dry toilet properly’, and ‘Plus-size clients and wash/dry toilets’.

Working in partnership previously, Closomat and The OT Service held their first joint webinar of 2022, ‘Neurological – Impact of neurological trauma on bathroom activity’, which focused on the impact of neurological trauma on bathroom activity.
