CLINICAL DECISION – MAKING MASTERCLASS

KIDS+ PAEDIATRIC PROGRAM

Description

Come and learn from, and with, experienced paediatric therapists how to develop a systematic process for clinical decision-making to enhance your capabilities to develop tailored, evidence-based interventions.  The workshop will draw upon case examples and video analysis from the group to facilitate translation of knowledge back to the clinical setting.

Clinical decision-making requires clinicians to analyse and interpret information from a range of sources and consider multiple and intersecting variables.  Experienced practitioners are expected to weigh up information and make decisions quickly in everyday practice situations.

Considerations include child characteristics, family variables, available evidence, clinician expertise and resources available.  This is a practical workshop using case studies and group work to problem-solve and apply core concepts of paediatric practice to clinical scenarios.  Attendees will be invited to submit case studies from their clinical experience for the group to analyse and provide practical ideas and strategies for implementation.

This seminar is designed for experienced Paediatric Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Pathologists.  It draws upon recognised best practice frameworks and clinical expertise to advance your skills in clinical decision-making.

 

Objectives:

  • Apply a practice-based approach to clinical decision-making through joint analysis and interpretation of case examples,
  • Develop clinical reasoning skills utilising the ICF framework to encompass different domains for assessment and intervention,
  • Focus on participation outcomes through detailed analysis and understanding of personal and contextual factors,
  • Connect with a network of experienced practitioners to support ongoing learning and professional development.

 

Facilitators

Kelly Reynolds (PT), Kelsey Jamieson (OT) and Jenna O’ Brien (SP), expert clinicians with extensive experience specialising in the treatment of children with complex neuromotor disabilities, will facilitate the seminar.

FUNDAMENTAL PAEDIATRIC PRACTICE

KIDS+ PAEDIATRIC 2 DAY PROGRAM

Description

This informative seminar focuses on developing clinical skills in assessment, analysis and treatment planning for children with developmental disorders.  It enhances integration of knowledge into clinical practice to support enhanced outcomes for children accessing early intervention and therapeutic supports.  Attendees will understand and apply treatment principles to target common activity limitations and impairments in a functional framework.

This seminar draws upon experiences in your current practice and provides the tools to further analyse the child’s capacity, family situation and contextual factors, expanding knowledge and practice into additional areas.

Current frameworks and best practice guidelines for early intervention are used for assessment, goal setting and treatment planning. Effective knowledge translation is supported by small group work, discussion, case examples and video analysis.

 

Objectives

  • Systematic approaches to assessment and analysis to inform clinical decision making;
  • Enhanced skills of movement analysis to further understand functional limitations;
  • Greater emphasis on a multi-system approach to assessment to develop skills across a range of developmental domains;
  • Integration of therapy strategies into functional tasks to support skill development and independence
  • Targeting movement, task and environmental factors within therapy programs
  • Utilising adjuncts to therapy for maintenance and carry over into everyday
