At ACIA this year I had my first podium presentation. I spoke about trends seen in datalogging in conjunction with strengths based coaching techniques and co-treating. These strategies are used with the parent in mind to help build confidence with technology and better facilitate communication between provider and parent. In addition, I had a poster on display and a short podium talk to highlight it. The poster’s theme was the Engaging Parents Task Force. This was a group of clinicians, staff, parents and students. We met over several Saturdays to complete a questionnaire regarding how the clinic can better meet the needs of our patients. With successful completion of the task force, we hope to implement ideas in the clinic in the future.
