Translating clinical practice into real world environments: Does what we teach them really work? (Part 2) (December 19, 2018)


Balance ball chairs, sit/stand desks, “lift with your legs” – do any really work? Explore realistic and effective activity and space modifications recommendations for patients across the lifespan using the limited contextual information available in clinic-based practice. Best practices dictate that there should be a strong correlation between recommendations and education provided in the clinic and the current evidence about the effectiveness of interventions in the patient’s real world environment. However, much of what we teach and recommend in the clinic does not work in the real world. Come find out why and what you can do about it.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the influences of environmental factors, including physical space, institutional policies, and psychosocial factors on the clinical reasoning process when making "real-world" recommendationgs for space or activity modification.
  2. Understand the current research related to environmental and activity modifications/ergonomics.
  3. Identify methods to improve the effectiveness of recommendations for "real world" environments.
  4. Identify methods to improve clinical reasoning skills when analyzing equipment that has the potential for being used by clients.
