If you follow Clinical Corner, you will notice that the article in October often is a little different than usual.  October marks another anniversary with Sunrise Medical for me.  It is 9 years now!  October also marks Occupational Therapy month nationally.  What better way to celebrate both than with a focus on clinical resources available on the Sunrise Medical website.  In addition, this article will look back at Clinical Corner with a catalogue of Clinical Corner articles for ease of reference.  You may want to Bookmark this page!

More about Outcome Measures

More about Outcome Measures

The focus of Clinical Corner for the past 2 months has been on outcomes and outcome measures.  The June 2019 article, Outcomes and Outcome Measures in Seating and Mobility: Current Practice, distinguished between outcomes and outcome measures and highlighted some of the results of a survey with therapists practicing in seating and mobility in Canada regarding their use of outcomes and outcome measures.  The July 2019 article, From Outcomes to Outcome Measures: Next Steps, reviewed the relevance of outcome measures and the key considerations when selecting outcome measures. Clinical Corner will continue the theme on outcome measures this month with a focus on specific outcome measures that can be used in seating and mobility.
