Title: What Are the Best Practices for Tele-Rehabilitation for Children with Disabilities? Ethical Considerations, Evidence, and Coaching Families for Success.
Speakers: Chantal Camden, Dahlia Kairy, and Debra Teitelbaum
Topic: In the current context, where there is an urgency to find strategies to increase accessibility to care, it is important to take into account ethical factors which could impact the care provided. Clinicians are increasingly asked to provide tele-rehabilitation, but might wonder what is the evidence and how to get started. This presentation will provide them with some examples of interventions that have been assessed to date.
Coaching is a black box. A recent systematic review (Ward et al 2019) highlighted the poor operationalization of coaching in clinical practice and, as a result, a tool has been developed that operationalizes coaching within the treatment sessions. There are five coaching events that can be implemented to help families achieve their goals.
