Enabling Occupation through the Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive Impairments in Adults

Presented by Debby McQuillen, OT Reg. (Ont)

This 2 day, hands on, workshop will provide occupational therapists with the opportunity to learn and practice functional structured activities used to assess and treat cognition in adults.  We will review a number of standardized assessments and identify their strengths and limitations. We will analyze cognitive components including insight, organization, problem solving, attention, memory, flexibility and executive function and discuss how to identify a client’s cognitive strengths, reduce impairment and provide accommodation to enable occupational engagement.

The Nuts and Bolts of Sustainable Return to Work Programs: The Whole Deal

Presented by Nancy Gowan, B.H.Sc. (O.T.), O.T. Reg. (Ont.), CDMP and Lorraine Mischuk, O.T. Reg. (MB) C.W.C.E. 

In this two-day hands-on workshop, you will learn how to identify psychosocial risk factors and cognitive overlay with clients who have musculoskeletal injuries or complex health issues with a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) or a Functional Assessment (example worksite assessment, gradual return to work program assessment).  This includes learning the assessment tools, interaction with clients, and integrating the findings into your report.  Participants will learn how to perform a physical/cognitive/visual demands analysis and use this in a clear job match process for return to work.  Understanding the literature as it relates to return to work and accommodation as well as understanding the legal decisions will be reviewed.  The workshop format includes lecture, video clips and small group activities.
