Invacare Community Seating Event - Manchester

Wednesday 11th June 2014

Manchester - Disabled Living

Invacare are delighted to announce four community seating events to be held nationwide, offering free Continued Professional Development opportunities to OTs and other healthcare professionals with an interest in specialist seating, posture and pressure management.

The events will be headlined by our OT Ambassador for Seating, Ellie Burcher of EJB Therapy. Ellie brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in seating, with buckets of enthusiasm and plenty of fun to the day looking at positioning, pressure care and equipment selection! As a healthcare professional herself, Ellie understands what is needed from attending a training day and the importance of applying practical knowledge in her day to day activities.

Outcomes:

  • To be able to identify normal posture patterns and postural abnormalities
  • To increase knowledge of the causes of pressure damage and methods to assess risk
  • To increase confidence in completing a seating assessment and implementing seat plans
  • To increase knowledge of selecting Kirton & Invacare products to meet clients’ needs

The seminar content will be led by Ellie with afternoon workshop sessions led by our product specialists, to help familiarise you with both Invacare and Kirton’s seating and pressure care solutions.

If you would like to attend this free of charge awareness day please email lizgatt@kirtonhealthcare.co.uk or call 01440 765017.  Places are limited so to avoid disappointment, please register your attendance as early as possible.
