Navigating the Journey

Presenters:

Hank Chambers, MD; Michelle Tourne PT, DPT, PCS; Dianne Hrubec, MS, PT; Amanda Sarafian, MSOT; Laura Vogtle PhD, OTR/L; Natalie Truba, PhD; Jill Chambers


Summary:

This course is designed to be a forum for providers to discuss challenges that families and health care professionals encounter as they work to build a successful family-team relationship over time.  Each week focuses on a different topic in the family /provider relationship where conflicts can occur-- living with grief, therapies and equipment, alternative therapies and transition. In Navigating the Journey, participants will meet families talking about the challenges in raising children with disabilities via video interview.  Providers will discuss challenging scenarios they faced with families and participants will engage in robust on-line discussion of challenges and strategies to build successful professional relationships with the families they serve.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to identity and address difficult situations and communications with families.
  2. Participants will develop an understanding of the role grief plays in family decision making in raising a child with a disability.
  3. Participants will develop an understanding of the change in family dynamics and priorities over the lifespan of raising a child with a disability.
  4. Participants will improve communication skills in addressing conflict with patients.
