Sarah Holt and the Group Rehabilitation Team at London Road Community Hospital in Derby have been using the Primus for over four years. They primarily use the Primus to support musculoskeletal patients in their return to work. They have formed a great income generating partnership with a large local manufacturer using the Primus to provide objective assessment of the employees’ capacity to complete specific work tasks and functional capacity evaluations to support decisions around redeployment.
Since the pandemic has restricted the number of none essential appointments, the team have been using the Primus as part of their objective assessment and remote management of patients. The team have also developed and delivered a rehabilitation pathway for Covid patients aiming to return to work. The impact of the disease can cause substantial long-term issues for the patient. The team’s role is to enable to patient to be able to return to work safely and to reduce the chance of subsequent issues. This session will go in to how the system is providing vital data to the clinical team, patient and employers to maximise the patients’ recovery and enable them to successfully return to the workplace.
We will have a 20-30 minute presentation from Sarah Holt followed by an interactive Q&A session. In this webinar Sarah will present a case study on the management of a COVID-19 patient.
