AusACPDM Listening and Sharing session: 26th July 2023

Preterm infants and participation: insights into conceptualisation, assessment and intervention

Wednesday July 26th, 4.30-5.30 Australian EST

Join us in our free listening and sharing session.

Topic information: Participation is the ultimate health outcome in childhood rehabilitation. Despite our recent gains in understanding participation of older children, there has been a distinct lack of research on infant participation. Join Dr Chelsea Mobbs has she shares the insights on infant participation from her recently completed PhD thesis, including the results of a feasibility study of ‘PreEMPT’ a participation-grounded and participation-enhancing early physiotherapy intervention for preterm infants. Hear about:

  • Why participation matters for infants
  • What is infant participation and what does it look like?
  • How can we measure it?
  • Can we direct our intervention towards an infant’s participation?

This session would interest allied health professionals working in early intervention, preterm infant follow-up and those who provide services under NDIS, and parents of infants and young children.

Speaker: Dr Chelsea Mobbs (PhD, Physiotherapist)

Faciliator: Alicia Spittle
