Course Title: Who’s Driving the Bus? A Team Approach to Equipment Prescription

Course Description:

Equipment prescription in pediatrics can be overwhelming at times. Clinicians may find themselves isolated in decision making or surrounded by a multitude of stakeholders. This interactive presentation will focus on a team approach to equipment prescription. Climb onboard our bus as we first define a destination by defining the relationship between adaptive equipment and a child. Travel along as we map out our route and explore different models of equipment prescription and the benefits of a team approach. Finally, exit our journey with ideas for clinical leadership in assisting families with decision making for functional tech. The roles of team members, strategies for communication, and a structure for device selection will be discussed. Effective team utilization can minimize misconceptions and optimize outcomes for the assistive technology user in a variety of practice settings.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify team participants and their roles during equipment prescription.
  2. Describe 3 components of the equipment assessment process that is unique to clinicians.
  3. Describe 2 components of the equipment assessment process that are unique to suppliers.
  4. Compare and contrast in a clinical case study how a team interaction can affect outcomes.
