19-23 January — PRPP Assessment Course
Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS
Walkergate Park Centre for Neurological Rehabilitation and Neuropsychiatry
Newcastle upon Tyne, England
This 5-day course will familiarise Occupational Therapists to the PRPP Assessment – a standardised, person-centred, criterion referenced, occupational therapy assessment of occupational performance. It is used with clients of any age, gender, diagnosis, or cultural background whose performance is compromised by difficulties with the cognitive demands of occupations. The assessment yields information about performance mastery and cognitive strategy application capacity. Strategy application behaviours assessed align with dimensions of attention and perception (P), learning, memory and recall (R), planning, decision-making and judgment (P), and the capacity to act on decisions and follow-through with plans (P). The PRPP assessment is used internationally, and has been translated into several languages. It has established validity in a variety of practice domains including neurology, mental health, learning disabilities, autism, chronic pain, HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders, and dementia. Acceptable reliability has been demonstrated following training.
Cost: £750 (Lunch and beverages provided)
