This session will consider the scientific thinking behind bathing and clinically focused evidence base, consisting of skin conditions and discomfort, in addition to perceptions around when bathing is not proper due to medical diagnosis.


By attending, OTs will review the perceptions about who can shower and why; consider the impact of specific medical conditions on bathing; critically analyse the application of occupational therapy core beliefs; understand the relationship in between bathing and occupational performance; and establish greater understanding of devices readily available to support bathing as a meaningful occupation.

It completes with a discussion on legislation and how bathing recommendations through both medical requirement and as a significant occupation can be supported.

Alongside the workshop, Abacus will be showing its acclaimed Gemini 2000 hi-lo platform bath on stands 5 and 6.

At the upcoming OTAC Exeter, Adam will provide a CPD seminar called Exploration of medical and functionally focused bathing. It will take location in Theatre 1 from 11.30am-12.30 pm.

Adam Ferry and a regional evaluation manager from Abacus will be offered at the occasion to offer one-to-one advice regarding proper bathing solutions for clients. Ongoing CPD education, with totally free CPD certificates, continues to be readily available at the Abacus Academy.

The workshop will then motivate delegates to review the bathing evaluation process, drawing on evidence to support bathing as a significant occupation in itself with impacts on other aspects of daily living.

Running in different places throughout the UK, the conference concentrates on bringing ots and providers together in one location with one goal: to improve the market as an entire and supply much better worth to the end user.
