In this recorded webinar, building on webinar 1, we discuss 3 vignettes on implementing a neurorehabilitation intervention and/or service in 3 different contexts: public hospital, paediatric population and private clinic.
In this recorded webinar, building on webinar 1, we discuss 3 vignettes on implementing a neurorehabilitation intervention and/or service in 3 different contexts: public hospital, paediatric population and private clinic. This webinar explores how to use implementation research methods to develop, implement and evaluate interventions within a neurorehabilitation setting.
Apply knowledge on evidence-based neurorehabilitation to address patient / population needs.
Strategies to engage consumers in high intensity practice.
Matching patients with neurorehabilitation interventions.
Explore how implementation research can inform sustainable practice change.
Understand how to use data to support a business case for neurorehabilitation.
WHO IS THIS WEBINAR SUITABLE FOR:
Therapists interested and working in neurorehabilitation in hospitals, clinics and working with NDIS participants in the home.
MEET THE SPEAKERS:
Senior Neurological Physiotherapist and Supervisor
Hannah graduated with a Masters degree in Physiotherapy from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland in 2013. She spent the next 3 years gaining valuable experience as a rotational physiotherapist within the NHS in England and Scotland acquiring a broad range of knowledge in several different specialties. It was during this time that she developed a strong interest in neurological physiotherapy working with different conditions including stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease and acquired brain injury.
Hannah made the move to Australia in 2017, working in a private practice before joining the team at ARC. She is passionate about assessing and analysing movement and has refined her assessment skills through experience in both musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy to help her clients reach their goals. Hannah has a key interest in gait and balance re-education and has enjoyed the challenge of incorporating the use of technology and robotics to help her clients get the best rehabilitation outcomes. With a passion for movement analysis and gait, Hannah has a special interest in brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation and enjoys helping clients to regain, strength and movement to optimise function.
Alongside individualised therapy, Hannah also enjoys leading a number of the group classes at ARC. She is a PD Warrior instructor and course leader and thrives on instructing clients in a class environment to motivate them to excel to their full potential. In addition, she is the lead therapist for ARC’s NeuroCore program which incorporates Pilates style exercises and techniques to help strengthen and stabilise her clients.
Jenny is a physiotherapist and the owner of Rehab Therapies, a private allied health service specialising in children and adults with physical disabilities as a result of neurological conditions. She has almost 20 years of experience in physical disabilities having worked within the hospital system and the community. She started her career at The Cerebral Palsy Alliance before moving onto The Children's Hospital at Westmead where she has helped to establish the orthopaedic surgery service for children with Cerebral Palsy.
During her time at the Children’s hospital at Westmead, Jenny worked alongside orthopaedic surgeons and rehabilitation specialists to support families and community therapists through orthopaedic surgery. She also worked in The Paediatric Gait Analysis Service, the Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy program and engaged in research to publish 3 papers.
Marlena Klaic is an occupational therapist and researcher at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. She has more than 20 years of clinical experience working within the neurosciences field in all contexts including acute hospital, rehabilitation and home-based services.
In the last 10 years, Marlena has focused on health services research with a particular interest in the use of technology. She was a member of the team who established the first publicly funded technology driven upper limb rehabilitation service. Marlena prospectively identified barriers and enablers to the use of technology in clinical practice and developed a tailored approach to the training, resources and implementation of the clinic, which continues to function six years later.
Marlena is also a postdoctoral research fellow in implementation science. Her research focuses on assisting individuals, teams and organisations to develop innovations and interventions that can sustainably be used to address evidence-practice gaps.
