Batman - Providing Culturally Safe Rehab Care - Long way from Home, Country and Family - 15 March 2022 at 12:30pm (AEDT)


Marianne Spizzo will outline a case study on a young boy from remote NT with a spinal cord injury, with a particular focus on strategies used to successfully engage him during his rehabilitation.
She will reflect on the challenges of engagement, building a trusting relationship, recognition of trauma – mind-body connection and behaviour response with regards to pain and distress.

“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel” Maya Angelou
