Abacus looks to engage OTs in new ‘discharge to assess’ webinar
Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions is hosting a free webinar aimed at healthcare professionals about the ‘discharge to assess’ (D2A) process.
The D2A model involves the funding and supporting of people to leave hospital, when safe and appropriate to do so, and continuing their care and assessment out of hospital.
The free Abacus Academy webinar, entitled: Discharge to assess – an occupational perspective, has been set up in conjunction with The OT Service and will be hosted Occupational Therapist Adam Ferry.
Says Adam: “Discharge to assess has been applied widely across England since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, but this webinar will consider whether the application of the process has been consistent, productive and indeed safe.
“We will reflect on the essence of D2A and how this either supports or hinders the therapeutic process.
“Finally, we consider the impact on community-based services, using bathing as an example to demonstrate a spectrum of potential outcomes following the use of D2A in its true form.”
As well as considering the aim of D2A and its impact on NHS/Local Authority occupational therapy services, the webinar will review the legislation to reflect on D2A application nationally and it will discuss the potential benefits and challenges to occupational therapy practice. The webinar will also consider the impact of D2A on clinical reasoning processes within bathing.
Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions launched the Abacus Academy in November 2020, an online hub providing free CPD bathing education to healthcare professionals. As well as providing written information, the Abacus Academy offers a platform for video assessments and webinars.
The webinar will be held on 27th January 2021 from 1pm to 2pm (live with OT Q&A) and 6-7pm (pre-recorded with live OT Q&A). Spaces for the webinar must be booked in advance (hidden: https://tinyurl.com/y3rtqsjw), with a Zoom video link sent to participants prior to the event.https://thiis.co.uk/abacus-looks-to-engage-ots-in-new-discharge-to-assess-webinar/https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Webp.net-resizeimage1-3.jpg?fit=900%2C662&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Webp.net-resizeimage1-3.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Events & ExhibitionsNewsroomSupplier NewsTrade NewsUncategorisedAbacus Academy,Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions,CPD,D2A,discharge to assess,healthcare,webinarAbacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions is hosting a free webinar aimed at healthcare professionals about the ‘discharge to assess’ (D2A) process.
