ISPO UK Webinar Series 2020/21 - LAUNCH EVENT
Rebuilding Prosthetic & Orthotic Services Post Covid-19
Thursday 3 December 2020 at 4 pm
Chair: Carolyn Young, National Programme of Care Manager,
NHSE & NHS Improvement
The first in a series of webinars as part of the ISPO 50th Anniversary Celebrations, this event aims to draw together representatives across all parties involved in Prosthetic & Orthotic service delivery to explore and discuss this urgent and important matter.
Covid-19 has inflicted a devastating impact upon the delivery of healthcare services across the NHS. This includes all aspects of the P & O sector with patients unable to access appropriate treatment and devices over an extended period. We now have an unprecedented backlog of patients combined with a fragmented re-emergence of P & O services across the UK. The ability to deliver services at scale has been compromised for the foreseeable future. With particular regard to Orthotic services the situation is exceptionally fragile due to inequitable funding models that are likely to prove unsustainable in the short to medium term.
Join our webinar on Thursday 3rd December 2020 from 4 - 6 pm for a series of 10 minute presentations on a range of topics including
- best practice developed during Covid-19
- service prioritisation
- e-consultations and digital technology
- service funding models
- user experience
and open discussion.
Full programme available shortly.
