This one-hour, live course is intended to facilitate clinicians and equipment suppliers’ understanding of how to be successful in the provision of power wheelchair (PWC) complex rehabilitation technology (CRT). In many settings, where time and resources are limited, the potential exists to overlook clients who may need CRT solutions but are provided with basic equipment. When a client with long-term wheeled mobility needs is prescribed a product intended for short-term use, secondary complications can occur. This course is intended to promote best-practice PWC CRT application for successful clinical outcomes using today’s technology.
This course will utilize clinical examples to assist the clinical decision-making process about who needs CRT, how outcomes can be improved, and how to navigate the CRT provision landscape. Upon completion of this course, clinicians will have a better understanding of how to initiate referrals and recommend PWC CRT to optimize client outcomes.
