Whether you have been an ATP supplier or a clinician in CRT for many years or are brand new to the field, we are all facing continuous changes in our delivery models due to time constraints, funding parameters, business goals and capacity of personnel. What is best practice? Can we follow best practice with these constraints?
This interactive webinar will provide an overview of the challenges in our field relative to evaluation/ assessment and delivery/fitting. We will briefly look at the factors that have led us to these current challenges. An overview of suggested strategies to work within these constraints will be discussed, with the goal of maintaining the clinician/ ATP-supplier partnership to the benefit of the client.
Polls of the audience will be intermittently used to gauge audience experience and opinion.
