Level 2 Wheeled Mobility and Postural Management Case Study Requirements

Keywords: Learning and Development

New assessors applying for the Level 2 Wheeled Mobility & Postural Management credential:

One case study with reflective practice log needs to be submitted to Enable New Zealand for review by the Credentialling Panel. The case study must demonstrate the assessor’s ability to independently work through the assessment process from initial interview, physical assessment, identification of needs/goals with the person, trial of equipment and final configuration and training. For those assessors submitting a case study subsequent to an assessment which involved working jointly with another colleague, the reflective practice log for joint assessments should be completed. Assisted assessments where a more experienced assessor was needed to guide the process should not be included as a case study for the purposes of applying for the Level 2 credential.

The case study being forwarded to Enable New Zealand, must include the following (incomplete documentation will result in the credential application being returned to the assessor):

• A brief summary of the training plan for safe use and other considerations/concerns which may have led to liaison with, or referral to, other service providers. This is included on the Equipment Parameter form.

• Photographs of the person (with faces blanked) in their equipment before and after intervention. Photographs should include a side and front view and be of appropriate quality for the Credentialling Panel to see changes. If the person self-propels ask that their hands are at the 12 o’clock position on the rear wheels for the side view. Please ensure all photographs are clearly labelled. If the person uses powered mobility, ask that they interface with the control method for one photograph.

• Photographs and rationale of special adjustments/modifications made to the equipment to meet the individual requirements of the person e.g. specifically shaped lumbosacral block, setting of pre-ischial ledge, contouring for back support, modified footplate.

All assessors applying for the optional Complex Custom Fabrication endorsement:

One case study with reflective practice log for a person who requires a highly individualised custom fabricated seating solution or, an unusual custom modified wheeled mobility base, needs to be submitted to Enable New Zealand for review by the Credentialling Panel. This endorsement is optional. The Level 2 Wheeled Mobility and Postural Management credential is a pre-requisite for this endorsement. Level 2 assessors need to complete the additional 2 tasks on the Level 2 Learning and Development Programme with Employer sign-off, and a custom fabrication case study if applying for this endorsement at a later date.

For those assessors submitting a case study subsequent to an assessment which involved working jointly with another colleague, the reflective practice log for joint assessments should be completed. Assisted assessments where a more experienced assessor was needed to guide the process should not be included as a case study for the purposes of applying for the Complex Custom Fabrication endorsement.
