Keeping It Fresh

15th November, Edgbaston Cricket Stadium

Learning how a rehabilitation service, be it an acute or community service, or a SEN service, improves therapy outcomes, is essential for various reasons. Not only is it needed to provide evidence-based data to illustrate the impact and value or a service, the nature of the outcomes can provide significant comfort and reassurance to therapy or education team; and of course, the person in need of a rehabilitation service or SEN and their family. 

TOMs CONNECT,  which began in 2016, is a unique conference providing the perfect opportunity for professionals and services to come together from across the UK, and share as well as showcase their work with TOMs, including the capturing of real world, evidence-base data.

The Person-Centred Neurosciences Society have published an important paper one of the largest online medical education platforms in the UK, OnMedica

The paper provides a unique window into what it’s like to hear very challenging news, written with health professionals who have had to hear the news themselves! But importantly, it also highlights how upsetting and stressful it can be for many health professionals who are having to impart that challenging news, something that some people may not have appreciated before.

We are delighted to support this paper which the P-CNS hope can be brought to the attention of many people to support the voice of those who feel they haven’t been heard.

You can read it here on the Onmedica platform. For non health professionals who wish to read this, simply click here

The Therapy Outcome Measures (TOMs), developed by Professor Pam Enderby and Dr Alex John, is a reliable and clinical valid outcome measure used by professionals working in health and across, social care and education. It is a measure used to capture data to support the impact and value of person-centred rehabilitation services that are designed to optimises care of person and support the follow 4 aspects of a person’s quality of living:

  • impairment
  • activity
  • participation
  • wellbeing

This one day workshop takes delegates through the clinical significance and relevance of outcome measurement in general. It also provides the background to the development of the TOMs including the reliability and clinical validity.

The training ensures the professional becomes competent in using a simple assessment of treatment outcomes, taking just a few minutes to complete. The TOMs is a tool that is used for treatment planning, clinical management, audit and research. It allows for the aggregation of data so that comparisons can be made for the purposes of internal and external benchmarking. To sign up for the next training day click here
