Seminar Synopsis:

Bathing is not just about the act of physically washing and keeping yourself clean or is it?  This seminar will explore the importance of bathing as a meaningful occupation and enable professional attendees to:

  • Assess the occupational bathing needs of their clients
  • Review what it really means to work in a client centred manner
  • To clearly define the benefits of bathing

Adam will be presenting material from Kate Sheehan, a respected Occupational Therapist with 30 years’ experience in client assessment, bathroom accessibility and housing design. Kate and her OT team work closely with us to provide our new educational CPD seminar programme.

Our CPD assisted bathing courses provide vital theory and evidence-based knowledge for OTs, Physiotherapists and Moving and Handling Practitioners. Healthcare professionals visiting OTAC can collect details regarding these free seminars on stand 020. Information regarding our “Lunch and Learn” practical safe assisted bathing workshops, case studies and legislative funding guides will also be available.

In terms of products, we are a leading specialist in accessible power-assisted baths and postural supports. At OTAC our Regional Assessment Managers will be demonstrating how the height adjustable Gemini, provides a safe and comfortable bathing experience through its unique ‘double lift’ action and integrated platform. Popular with families and Occupational Therapists alike, this trusted accessible bath eliminates awkward manual transfers and provides safer working heights for carers.
