Postural Care

Local premiere of our Postural Care film:

PAMIS in South Lanarkshire has been working alongside family carers, NHS Lanarkshire, the Scottish Government and August Pictures to develop a film to reach out to families across Scotland. The film looks at the subject of postural care with families and healthcare professionals explaining why it is so important to maintain good body positioning throughout the day and night. After a long period of filming and editing, we were excited to host our local premiere on Wednesday 10th August with all families involved having a sneak preview before our national launch later in the year. The film is available both electronically and as a DVD. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

Promoting the benefits of Postural Care:

20160615_142714Two of our Postural Care Champions have been out and about sharing their knowledge and helping others understand the need and benefits of 24 hour postural care. Kate Jordan and Frances Cadzow had the opportunity to speak at the Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway Scotland (CPIPS) Annual General Meeting in June, presenting to an audience of orthopaedic consultants, physiotherapists and occupational therapists from across Scotland. They shared the work they’ve been involved in locally raising the profile of postural care and presented a small clip from our Postural Care film.

Frances also had the opportunity to co-present a poster on the benefits of 24 hour postural care at the NHS Scotland Event in June. She co-authored the poster with PAMIS and NHS Lanarkshire specialist physiotherapists, Lynn Frew and Clare Boslem. The poster was presented to an audience of various health professionals, all interested in hearing how implementing good postural care had had a positive impact on her son’s life.
