Free webinar for OTs to learn about common paediatric conditions and the impact on bathroom activity
December will see the second of Closomat’s new-style quarterly webinars for occupational therapists (OTs), which will explore common paediatric conditions and the impact on bathroom activity.
The live webinar – ‘Common conditions and impact on bathroom activity’ – will be hosted by Closomat but delivered by clinical experts from The OT Service. It will cover the relationship between common conditions and the impact these have on a child’s bathroom activity.
The webinar will take place on 16th December 2021 from 11am-12pm. OTs interested in attending can register here.
Delegates will reflect on the impact on occupational performance of a number of common health conditions, or areas of ill-health.
There will also be a focus on occupational performance and activity analysis in the bathroom to further understand the impact of the specific environment on independence in the context of common health conditions.
Clinical reasoning will be challenged, Closomat underlines, using legislation and guidance to provide an evidence base. Attendees will further reflect on the use of equipment and adaptations in the bathroom to support independence, reduce risk and maximise client potential.
During Closomat’s recent project to document common disabilities and conditions, and how its wash and dry toilet aids safe toileting, the assisted bathing specialist said it became clear that paediatric conditions needed highlighting.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat Marketing Manager, commented: “Creating our disabilities and conditions resource guide was a real labour of love to create but the outcome was well worth the effort. It brings together a number of well-known disabilities and how the Palma Vita toilet works to provide a safe and effective toileting experience.”
The resource guide on safe and effective toileting can be found here.
With more time available in between each event and its full webinar schedule pre-published in advance, Closomat hopes to attract key groups of healthcare providers either taking the opportunity to upskill or others wishing to add to their existing skill-set.
Additionally, Closomat will be publishing complementary documents that will directly support the content delivered by The OT Service during the webinars. Closomat’s full webinar programme can be seen here.
Previous webinars that Closomat has run for OTs so far this year include one on post-stroke adaptations and accessible bathroom design to support independent ageing.
