Interactive Education Session 2:  Considerations and Practical Strategies to support clients with Complex Postural needs 

This online workshop will go over assessment and intervention strategies to support clinicians, even the experienced ones, in supporting clients with complex postural, function and skin integrity needs, particularly the ones who can sit with external postural supports. 

The provision of wheelchair seating and positioning for clients who are unable to actively support themselves in an upright and aligned position require a detailed and careful problem-solving approach. This online workshop will go over assessment and intervention strategies to support clinicians, even the experienced ones, in supporting clients with complex postural, functional and skin integrity needs, particularly the ones who can only sit with external postural supports. We will use real case scenarios to facilitate learning and reduce the fear of “not getting it right”. 

Main topics covered include: 

  • Seating and Positioning Principles applied to clients with Complex Postural Presentations
  • Practical strategies to address Posture Management, Pressure Management and Tone Management, 
  • Translating findings into Product Features, 
  • Clinical Reasoning Process,
  • Clinical Applications, 
  • Case Studies

Presenter: Joana Santiago, Clinical Educator and R&D Clinical Lead for Medifab

Date: 8th December 2020
