Course content

AMPS-2 Interpretation and Documentation days are intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research. Many occupational  therapists attending an AMPS course focus mainly on administering and scoring the AMPS. Later as skills in administering the assessment increase, there is a need to learn more about interpreting, reporting and documenting AMPS results. These two separate but linked follow-up days are intended to fill this gap. They can be attended separately (day one only) or together - contact busdev@yorksj.ac.uk for further information.

What will I learn?

6 hours (per day) of course instruction facilitated by an AMPS faculty instructor.  The two days are intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research.

Who should attend?

Health professionals who have previously attended the five day AMPS-1 course.  AMPS-2 Interpretation and Documentation days are two linked follow up days intended to build on AMPS skills developed from using the assessment tool with clients in any area of clinical practice or research. The second of these two linked days is intended to provide an opportunity for occupational therapists to work through the interpretation and documentation process using one of their own clients as the case study.
