On a New Home Modification Discussion Group in Brisbane

I hope to run a meeting at LifeTec Qld at Newmarket, in Brisbane, Queensland on Saturday 26 March for those people who are interested in networking and sharing ideas about home modification practice. The morning will start at 10am and conclude at 12 noon. I hope to discuss planning for the rest of the year (4 meetings in total for 2011) and feature one or two presentations of interest. Do contact me if you are interested in attending by using the contact section on this blog.

    Hi Sue and Chris

    Thanks for your replies. I will make sure I list you down to attend Chris. I have about 12 people listed so far. Sue – shall aim to put some notes on the blog site after the event for all to read to keep up with the discussions.

    Cheers, Liz

  3. Hi Liz
    What a great idea to set up the Discussion Group.
    One of the initiatives of the NSW HomeModification and Maintenance Services State Council is the development of a wide range of resources on home modifications for Occupational Therapists eg Fact Sheets, Forms, Proformas, Templates and Policies. All of these resources have undergone a rigourous review process by State Councils OT Reference Groups prior to being made available to the OT profession and reflect best practise in NSW. We are very willing to share these resources with all OTs. As you will be having presentations at the Discussion Groups I wondered wether you would be interested in a presentation from the State Council re OT resources available ….. perhaps also the role of the State Council as the peak body for home modifications in NSW? Let me know. All the best with the Discussion Group. Margaret Specialist OT, NSW HMMS State Council

    Hello Margaret
    Thank you for your message….
    I think that a presentation from a representative from the NSW HMMSSC sounds terrific. I hope to run three more meetings this year, possibly on a Saturday, and it would be good to hear about your service’s resources. It is always great to share information! I shall put the idea to the group on the 26 March. I have about 15 OT s on the list who hope to attend, to date.
