A Recovery Partners Educational Seminar | Australian Capital Territory
Recovery from injury is multifactorial and becomes ever more complicated the longer a person has a given injury or condition. Relying therefore, on the diagnosis to determine factors such as recovery timeframes and treatment success and the overall track of a given condition is largely inaccurate when compared to prognosis mapping.
When considering prognosis, it is critical comorbidities are considered given the negative association it represents to the health and wellbeing of the diagnosed individual. The presence of comorbid diseases may impact a host of factors pertinent to better health including detection accuracy, treatment, functional independence, and mental health to call out a few. Notably, chronic disease and comorbidities are becoming increasingly common throughout Australia with greater than 50% of the population reporting to have a chronic condition.
The esteemed Steven Kamper will be leading our seminar on Prognosis over Diagnosis. Using an evidence based approach, Steven will break down the limitations of focusing on diagnosis as opposed to prognosis in injury management models.
