Austin Area Home Health Council
September 26 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Enhancing the Future of Home Healthcare
Our Speaker is Erin Doherty, ad DBS Therapy Consultant with Boston Scientific Neuromodulation. Erin has an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. She worked for four years in spine then was elated to transition to a position in Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) where she has remained for the lat 9 1/2 years. DBS is one of the very few therapies where device reps get to see and be a part of the long term outcome and success of the implantable device.
Erin will be talking in general terms about the patient’s journey with Parkinson’s Disease, when and if a Neurologist may decide the patient is a candidate for DBS, and what the care and management of DBS in a home care or rehab setting may be like.
Our gracious host is Rapid Recovery Center of Round Rock.
Social Worker CEU’s will be offered at this meeting.
Anyone interested in learning more about our weekly topics or meeting others in the healthcare community is welcome to attend our meetings. Membership is encouraged, but not required for attendance. Our meetings are especially a great opportunity for doctors, nurses, social workers, case managers, and all other healthcare workers to meet, learn, and collaborate with others in the healthcare community. We usually offer Social Worker CEUs at most meetings.
All proceeds from meetings and attendance fees are donated to local non-profits at the end of each year.
