We conducted two training session in our showroom this week for occupational therapists. The OTs work with Kent County Council on contracted core stock items from Wealden Rehab.
The sessions focus was postural seating management and building confidence in prescribing core stock items to end users. As part of the session, we covered how to assess, order, adjust, and set up equipment in detail. The training featured the RAZ Shower Chair range, Saros Comfort Chairs and the GoLift ceiling hoist.
Providing this training is extremely important. As the OT becomes more knowledgeable about the product, they become more confident in prescribing it. This then means that the end users gain more benefit from the equipment. Our goal is to hold training sessions every six months to a year, to ensure that the knowledge is fresh and up-to-date.
Matthew, our Business Development Manager, who led the sessions, said:
“Everyone really enjoyed the day. The session was very hands-on and collaborative which encouraged the participants to discuss the challenges they encounter in their role and problem-solve as a group.”
We thoroughly enjoyed the OTs enthusiasm and thank them for their positive feedback (that we have shared over on our LinkedIn page.)
Our friendly sales team are refreshed after a busy two days, and ready to discuss your requirements. Give us a call today on 01634 813388.
