Our professional showcase offers you the chance to learn more about The Children’s Trust and provides an insight into the work we do here.
The day will feature talks from a variety of therapists. Firstly, there will be an overview of The Children’s Trust by Director of Clinical Services, Maggie Clancy. Maggie will set the scene for how we work – giving an overview of our history and current structure, as well as our strategy, funding and outcome measurements.
Following a specific child’s journey from referral, admission and initial assessment all the way through to discharge, you’ll hear from Physiotherapist, Gemma Kelly and Occupational Therapist, Helle Mills as they present on specialised rehabilitation.
Speech and Language Therapist, Becky O’Mahoney and Lead Nurse for Tracheostomy and LTV Care, Eleanor Bazely will present on rehabilitation and support of technology dependent children. Their presentation will focus on a child’s journey from pre-admission through to discharge, documenting their progress and the use of goal setting.
There will also be the opportunity to hear from a parent of one of the children that we care for. This provides a valuable insight into a family’s journey and their own experiences of The Children’s Trust.
The showcase will finish with a short tour of our centre and grounds which house our residential rehabilitation service, The Children’s Trust School, and the hydrotherapy pool.
