Training Workshop

A one-day workshop has been designed to provide participants (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and other health professionals) with the opportunity to learn to use the measure as a clinical or research assessment tool.  Data from a recent research project has indicted that this training workshop is a more effective method to train users than self-directed study.   Pat Miller and Maria Huijbregts are the workshop instructors.

During the one-day workshop, the instructors use tapes and group discussion to educate the participants about the administrative and scoring guidelines of the Chedoke Assessment.  Lectures include information about the measure’s development and psychometric properties, and its clinical application.  At the end of the workshop, the scoring competency of the participants is tested.  Those who meet the scoring criterion will receive a certificate of scoring competency.  All participants will receive written feedback regarding their performance on the test.  These are distributed within four to six weeks after the workshop.
