I'm Aoi Hashima , an occupational therapist working in Saga Sumai and Fukuoka.
I attended the 22nd Annual Conference on Cognitive Neurorehabilitation on October 1-2, 2022.
It's a shame, but due to the recent corona misfortune, I had to forego local participation.
However, thanks to an online system developed during the COVID-19 crisis, I was able to attend academic conferences from home.
This time, for the first time in a long time, I'm giving a general introduction to hand therapy for stroke patients.
Even if you don't present directly at the venue, as of last year, you can present your abstracts via on-demand delivery.
Questions and answers can also be exchanged using an app called Slack.
I feel like I've been able to restructure my clinical thoughts with some valuable questions.
The theme of the conference is "Clinical Modeling".
This topic includes the mindset of working with the patient to determine the content of recovery.
Rehab cannot be created by rehab personnel alone.
Only tests that can be confirmed externally from the patient (muscle tests, etc.) are not sufficient for rehabilitation.
There are many clinical tips that can be gained by sharing a patient's various experiences with rehabilitative staff.
It's been a long time since I attended an academic conference, and I feel like I still have a lot to learn.
Daily accumulation is important for clinical practice.
Starting tomorrow, I want to do my best clinically.
