Scheduled to run for an hour, the webinar’s learning outcomes will be:

  • Reflection on the types of neurological trauma and the impact on occupational performance
  • Review of potential activity analysis and the impact on toileting specifically
  • Consideration of intervention strategies to maximise independence and occupational engagement
  • Application of a model of practice to identify the impact bathroom adaptations have on long‐term health and wellbeing for clients with neurological trauma

Adam Ferry, OT Service Director, said: “Like all the webinars, we only have around 40 minutes to cover a given topic, which you can image is tricky. However it provides us with the challenge of being succinct and on-message.”

When the webinar has finished, Closomat will be publishing complementary documents that directly support the content delivered by The OT Service during the webinar.

Robin Tuffley, Closomat Marketing Manager, added: “Now that we have a proven model for our webinars, demonstrated by the sheer numbers that attend live or watch them on our YouTube Channel, we felt it was time to update the content further.

“Additionally, we have recently strengthened our clinical web content with the creation of our ‘Disabilities and Conditions Guide’, which reconciles the use of a wash/dry toilet with certain disabilities.”

Closomat’s webinar series is now taking place quarterly.

The bathroom specialist’s most recent webinar, in conjunction with The OT Service, discussed common paediatric conditions and the impact on bathroom activity.
