From bedside to boardroom: Exploring patient engagement opportunities in rehabilitation care

Register by Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 10:59 a.m. (Eastern Time)

Presenters: Siobhan Donaghy, Jennifer Shaffer & Paul Kocher

There is growing public demand for active patient engagement in health care, as demonstrated by the establishment of Accreditation Canada Standards for health care organizations. Given the profession’s focus on client-centred care through active partnerships, collaboration and shared decision-making with those who we support, occupational therapists have the foundational skills to foster and lead positive change in the area of patient engagement.  

This webinar explores the many ways that occupational therapists can actively support and lead patient engagement opportunities in rehabilitation contexts, through their roles in direct client care, clinical teaching, quality improvement, organizational development and practice-based research.  Examples will be shared which demonstrate patient engagement in action, along with practical tips, resources and references for both occupational therapists and their interprofessional colleagues to explore and apply in their own practice context.  

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the role of the patient as a vital, equal and active member of their rehabilitation care team.
  2. Identify strategies that will foster active partnerships with patients / families in the care planning process.
  3. Identify opportunities for active partnerships with patients / families in the process of identifying, developing and carrying out relevant strategic planning, quality improvement, educational and / or practice-based research initiatives.
