Gayle offers her knowledge and understanding of both mental and physical health and wellbeing to the product advisors at Wealden Rehab, emphasising the importance of a personal approach being a necessity to achieve the best outcomes. Assessing each client holistically encompasses the environmental considerations which improve solutions for installation of ceiling hoists and more detailed clinical considerations for seating.
Upon prescribing a piece of equipment the occupational therapist must clearly show their clinical consideration. Gayle has devised and shared documents to encourage clinical reasoning when prescribing Wealden Rehab’s most popular products. The documents are aimed for prescribing OT’s to consider the individual, environment and the task and to help justify the most appropriate outcome for the end-user.
Gayle has provided a rigorous training program for all of Wealden Rehabs’ product advisors, through individual and group training sessions. Her ongoing program is designed to enhance the assessments and the training they offer to their customers, which brings extra value. Wealden Rehab recognises the significance of having an OT in the team and a clinical approach in devising and delivering training for OT customers when prescribing Wealden Rehab products. We have observed increased confidence, greater understanding from OT’s in the setup and recommendation of our products resulting in improving the end-user experience.
In future months and years, Wealden Rehab will be excited to add to the range of products, and with the specialist input, Gayle will be able to critique and share her clinical knowledge regarding new products. This will surely have an impact on the quality of life of many end-users, which is Gayle says, ‘At the heart of everything we do.’
