What Isn’t Currently Attainable Through AgrAbility? (AgrAbility National Training Workshop)


Tuesday, June 22, 2021
1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

National AgrAbility Project

Description:

This session will include a pilot needs assessment of individuals that don’t yet qualify for VR but could benefit from similar services to prevent injury or slow decline. This session will be conducted in two parts. The first part will focus on an overview of 1) The prevalence of chronic diseases amongst agricultural producers as well as the impact of these diseases and 2) Age-related performance decline or increased safety risk despite disease or disability.

In the interactive portion of the session, attendees will be invited to discuss their observation and perspective of: 1. Who is AgrAbility missing? 2. What services do AgrAbility clients need but cannot access (i.e. PT/OT)? 3. How can we assist clients in rural areas with access to health care services when tele-health isn’t an option? 4. What are occupational needs of producers with chronic diseases that may need preventative care (no current disability)?
