ILS EDUCATION

 

ILS Sensational Seating Series is a comprehensive, three part course designed for therapists working in seating and positioning. The series will commence by exploring the importance of seating for function and positioning, including evaluation of pressure relieving cushions. A two day workshop will follow focusing on seating assessment and equipment solutions for manual and power mobility.
A hands-on approach to seating assessment and equipment prescription will be a large focus throughout the series.
Participants can select to attend one or all of the sessions relevant to their practice context and clinical experience. The aim of the series is to provide an environment to facilitate critical clinical reasoning and practical simulation of assessment processes for prescription of seating and mobility solutions.

Any therapist involved in or with an interest in seating and wheelchair prescription

All sessions will contribute to CPD points

  • Identify key elements of thorough referral and documentation
