Healthcare professionals (HCPs) of all disciplines working with the Parkinson’s community are invited to join Dr. Jennifer O’Neil (PhD) for this two-part training series discussing clinical applications of digital health for the Parkinson’s population.
During the pandemic, many healthcare professionals have had to adapt to using digital health services, often with minimal prior experience. By participating in this training series, HCPs will elevate their digital health knowledge through applying new concepts to deliver effective sessions while considering the patient’s motor impairments (e.g. balance and mobility) and cognitive impairments (e.g. executive functioning, spatial awareness, aphasia).
Learn to effectively monitor patient health through techniques for preparing the patient, setting up proper video background, “training” and navigating the caregiver, and critically thinking around the use of various technology (e.g. videoconference, activity tracking devices, applications, virtual reality). Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions about the evolving role and application of digital health in our post-pandemic healthcare system.
Facilitator Dr. Jennifer O’Neil is a physiotherapist with a PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Ottawa. Her research focuses on the accessibility of physiotherapy interventions and the use of technology to improve access to rehabilitation in the moderate to severe traumatic brain injury population. Jennifer is a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa, coordinating the clinical neurology course within the physiotherapy program. As the founder of Reachable Rehab, she strives to increase accessibility of rehabilitation by providing continuing education and consulting services.
