About the course
Transporting Children with Disabilities and Medical Conditions is an evidence-based training course developed with funding from the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
Suitable for both novice and experienced allied health professionals, it aims to build knowledge and confidence in assessing and prescribing for children’s motor vehicle transport needs (under 16 years).
The course provides nine CPD hours and is structured over three weeks. However, participants can go at their own pace and have ongoing and unlimited access to the course after finishing.
Visit our training page for more information.
After the course
Upon completion of the course, Tasmanian participants receive a free copy of the MACA Guide, Australia's leading prescribing resource, and a certificate.
They will also be invited to attend a post course webinar hosted by MACA in November 2023 to reflect on key learnings from the training and explore how to continue to build practice knowledge and skills in this area.
MACA's course is the first of its kind and I would consider it a necessity for any therapist who is supporting children with disabilities and medical conditions to travel safely in vehicles
