Co-morbidity: are we well equipped to address the complex needs of our patients?

Description

With demographic pattern changing and an increase of multi-morbidity across the globe and more physiotherapy services delivered in the community, is there room for the generalist physical therapist? This session explores creative and realistic ways to address the increasingly complex needs of our patients.

Objectives

  • Enhance awareness of the complexity of patients’ needs
  • Explore ways how clinicians can improve ways to serve their patients’ needs
  • Discuss ways to break down silo thinking and explore practical ways for more cross-fertilisation amongst clinical fields
