RECORDED WEBINAR SUMMARY
OT IN PALLIATIVE CARE: AN OVERVIEW OF CURRENT EVIDENCE & CLINICAL PRACTICE
An ageing population and high prevalence of chronic disease means there is an increasing demand on palliative care services. This also means occupational therapists are working with patients with life limiting illnesses across an array of settings. This webinar will introduce occupational therapists to the core principles of palliative care with a specific focus on occupational engagement and adaptation in the context of decline. It will outline the key assessment and interventions used by occupational therapists and the emerging research that underpins these approaches. Webinar attendees will be able to participate in a series of clinical scenarios to test and share knowledge acquired during the session.
Suitable for Occupational Therapists Only.
- To be able to describe the core principles of palliative care.
- To understand the impact and experience of occupational engagement and adaptation in the context of functional decline.
- To be able to identify key assessment and intervention approaches in palliative care.
- To gain insight into current and future research relevant to occupational therapy practice in palliative care.
- To be able to apply and justify relevant assessments and interventions to specific palliative care case scenarios.
- To increase awareness of evidence based and professional development resources for occupational therapy and palliative care.
The webinar will provide insight into the emerging research that underpins the OT approach to practice in palliative care, with a specific focus on how OTs must reframe their practice to support occupational adaptation in the context of decline at end of life.
