Seminar focus is Rehabilitating Disabled Farmers and Ranchers

Occupational and physical therapists are invited to “Rehabilitating Nebraska Farmers and Ranchers with Disabilities.” The day-long seminar is planned for April 25, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Valley County Extension Office in Ord, NE. It is sponsored by the Nebraska AgrAbility Project, a joint effort of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and Easter Seals Nebraska. Continuing Educational Units will be available for the seminar.

Most do not realize it, but when a farmer or rancher is discharged from care following an injury or serious illness, he or she is not only returning home, but is also returning to an industrial work site.

Occupational therapists, physical therapists, OT assistants and PT assistants can play an important role in preparing farmers and ranchers to return to their homes. When home includes the workplace, special considerations are needed to ensure a safe transition.

“Rehabilitating Nebraska Farmers and Ranchers with Disabilities” is designed to help these health care providers become more competent in their care to the agricultural population they see on a regular basis. Lead instructor for the seminar is Christine Hutchinson. Hutchinson is a physical therapist at St. Francis Medical Center in West Point, Neb. She has extensive experience treating diverse patient populations. Practicing in the acute care as well as rural settings has enabled Christine to treat a variety of diverse patients. UNL Extension faculty and ESN staff will also teach portions of the seminar.

Pre-registration for the seminar is required by April 18. For a complete agenda or registration materials, contact Sharry Nielsen, UNL Extension Educator, 308-832-0645, or snielsen1@unl.edu. Full refund if cancellation made by April 22.
