Specific Injuries Experience
Margot is a Case Manager for an active caseload of clients suffering mainly from traumatic orthopaedic injury, joint injury and amputation.
She has extensive experience of this cohort through her work in Integrated Community NHS Services, where she carries out holistic assessments. She uses her wealth of knowledge in this area to create new care packages and adjust existing care packages to suit changing needs. Margot also has direct and regular contact with Social Care to negotiate ongoing, longer term support.
Margot is confident in working with terminal illness and those with palliative care needs (including cancer care). She also works with individuals who have long-term neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, MND and MS. Many of the individuals Margot works with also have associated pain and mental health issues.
Margot has significant experience of working in health and social care settings through her work in integrated community services. She also currently acts as an Independent Occupational Therapist and Case Manager. Her experience enables her to utilize and interpret clinical information from multi-disciplinary teams in order to recommend care, equipment and housing and manage the ongoing rehabilitation programme created. Her work in the community involves a significant level of complex discharge management and liaison/negotiation with ongoing community services, which often requires difficult discussions to secure the right level of support.
Through her prior work in Australia and her current Case Management work, Margot has demonstrated that she is highly competent in producing initial needs/workplace assessments, followed by active case management, creating achievable goals and identifying suitable duties for a phased return to a client’s pre-injury duties.
Margot supplemented her undergraduate studies by working in hands-on care settings and in trauma and orthopaedic rehabilitation services. This gives Margot a unique and credible insight into the practical applications of hands-on care.
