Clinical Currency Statement
As at June 2020, I am engaged in the role of Case Manager for Rehab Without Walls for an average of 84 hours per month. I also work as a private Occupational Therapist for an average of 8 hours per month.
Pam currently works as an OT and case manager, primarily with clients with life changing physical and neurological conditions requiring medical and surgical intervention, in addition to rehabilitation. Although she works autonomously, her caseload is highly varied and involves managing and working within multi-disciplinary care and therapy teams, to ensure the best outcomes for her clients.
She has extensive experience in assessing individual needs, working collaboratively with clients and their carer’s, to maximise and maintain their potential in both the short and longer term. This includes co-ordinating and implementing bespoke packages of care, including therapy services within statutory and private services, to ensure creative and cost-effective solutions.
Given the chronic and degenerative nature of many of the clients Pam works with, she has gained extensive knowledge of joint protection and pacing principles, fatigue management and workplace ergonomic assessments which encompass predictions for future requirements in line with disease progression. She has also developed an in-depth understanding of the potential debilitating psychological implications of chronic and degenerative conditions, and the impact this may have on an individual’s day to day functioning.
Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 2001, Pam has worked in both in-patient and out-patient settings and have gained comprehensive experience, specialist skills and knowledge across a wide range of clinical areas. This has included hand therapy, burns and plastics, scar management for adults and children, neurological intensive care, orthopaedics, rheumatology, chronic pain and general medical conditions. Her roles and focus have been to assess individual needs and to design treatment and rehab packages that would achieve patients’ short- and long-term goals, whilst providing recommendations for the necessary care and equipment that would facilitate independence and maximise functional ability.
