More about the Seminar

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

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

Shaun comments:

“I am thoroughly enjoying my new role at Theraposture. As I have been an OT forseveral years, I have already regularly recommended Theraposture products as they always provide positive outcomes. Superior quality, reliability and design all combine to provide better clinical care, comfort and safety so independence and occupational performance is maximised. The care cost savings achieved by Theraposture assistive beds, particularly the range of Rotoflex Turning Beds, are significant and represent the most appropriate intervention for safer recumbent-to-standing transfers.”

Shaun adds:

“The Theraposture team and existing clients have all been very welcoming to me. My ethos will be to make a clear difference to individuals seeking greater independent mobility whilst delivering educational material to assist fellow peers. Making a difference to peoples’ lives is why I trained to be an OT and continues to motivate me every day. Now part of the highly respected Theraposture team, I can offer clients comprehensive advice from both a product and clinical point of view.”
