MS Fatigue Management
Date: Thursday November 3rd, 2016
Time: 6:00 - 7:30pm PST
About the webinar:
Fatigue is one of the least understood and most frequent symptoms of MS. Many have reported that their fatigue levels fluctuate on a day-to-day basis and impact all areas of daily life. During this webinar you will learn from an Occupational Therapist how to recognise different types of fatigue, understand their contributing factors and develop strategies to manage your fatigue using a methodical approach. The event will be hosted by BC and Yukon Division and will feature Denise Kendrick OT.
Denise Kendrick is a graduate of the Master of Occupational Therapy program from the Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy at UBC. Denise took on role of developing student-led Occupational Therapy services in the UBC MS Clinic in 2014 and saw this as an opportunity to deliver evidence-based programs to address the impact of common symptoms of MS on daily function. Denise and her students build their programs upon the principles of self-efficacy to provide clients with the tools and strategies needed to effectively self-manage. Presently, programs to address fatigue, hand function, tremor and cognitive impairment are in development to minimize the impact these symptoms have on clients’ daily function.
