Effective as of the 24th of March 2020.
Therapy Solutions has decided to take a proactive health measure and begin conducting all occupational therapy assessments via video link. This decision is to protect the health and safety of our clients and the Therapy Solutions team.
Currently scheduled assessments will still be conducted at the same date and time as expected, however, the interview and examination will be via a dedicated Therapy Solutions’ video channel such as Skype, Zoom, or Face Time, for example.
Our staff are well trained to assist clients and talk them through the technical requirements of a video interview. If for some reason a video assessment is not possible, clients will be interviewed via telephone.
It is well established that occupational therapy reports authored under a video link methodology, have similar validity to ‘in person’ examinations. A 2018 study from the University of Queensland has found that there is a high level of consistency between tele-health and in-person assessments with respect to clinical management decisions and the diagnosis of patients with chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Therapy Solutions is still engaging in business as usual, although clients can no longer attend our offices in person until further notice. Please take precautions and exercise caution during this challenging time.
