Kate McGoldrick - Occupational Therapy Glasgow's profile

Kate McGoldrick - Occupational Therapy Glasgow

Occupational Therapy Glasgow

Graduated in BSc Occupational Therapy in 2003, I have vast experience working with individuals presenting with physical and neurological difficulties as a result of injury or illness.

Individuals - I work with individuals to identify the difficulties faced with everyday function and help develop strategies to promote independence and function, or create solutions to overcome difficulties. Recommendations are made for equipment, adaptations or a rehabilitation programme to optimise function and improve safety.

Employers - I work alongside employers to undertake work-based assessments to identifying reasonable adjustments, equipment or strategies to support employment following a period of illness or injury.

Case Managers - I undertake comprehensive occupational therapy assessment on behalf of case managers. I work with clients following road traffic accidents, industrial accidents and clinical negligence cases who have sustained various injuries or disabilities including traumatic brain injuries, orthopaedic trauma, amputations and many more. Assessment reports outline the impact that an accident, injury or disability has on the client’s ability to participate in everyday meaningful activity. Problems are clearly laid out within the reports and recommendations are made with respective costings. Monthly update progress reports are available, as appropriate.

Solicitors - I take referrals from solicitors for general occupational therapy functional assessments for clients involved in personal injury or medical negligence.
