Adam Ferry, Occupational Therapist, will be presenting on new CPD education at his first assisted bathing seminar of 2021 at OTAC Exeter (in association with Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions).
Adam’s presentation, Exploration of medical and functionally focused bathing, will be held between 11.30am and 12pm on 26 May in Theatre 1 at the conference at Exeter Racecourse.
The session will consider the clinical reasoning behind bathing and medically focused evidence base, including skin conditions and pain, as well as perceptions around when bathing is not appropriate due to diagnosis.
It will then encourage delegates to reflect on the bathing assessment process, drawing on evidence to support bathing as a meaningful occupation in itself with impacts on other aspects of daily living.
Adam will finish with a discussion on legislation and how bathing recommendations through both medical need and as a meaningful occupation can be supported.
Alongside the seminar, Abacus will be exhibiting its award-winning Gemini 2000 hi-lo platform bath on stands 5 and 6. The latest, larger and future-proofed Gemini bath, with unique dual lift functionality, won the prestigious Excellence in Caring Award at the OT Show. Adam Ferry and a Regional Assessment Manager from Abacus will be available at the event to provide one-to-one advice regarding appropriate bathing solutions for clients.
