The Mobile Delivery of a Comprehensive Program by a Multidisciplinary Team. Statistical Paper.
Cant, Malcolm J.
Questionnaires completed by 34 epilepsy clients of a long-term comprehensive and decentralized neurological center are analyzed, and professional staff time-statistics are considered in terms of staff member-client interaction time. Survey responses are outlined for the following aspects (sample findings in parentheses): the five most important things about the services which help meet the client's total needs (involvement with home and school, open communication with staff members); five most important things about the services which fail to meet the client's total needs (inadequate staff numbers, lack of communication with doctors); benefits of home treatment (more personal in nature, better relationship between staff number and child); benefits of center-based treatment (opportunities to meet other parents, advantages of group treatment); benefits of treatment at the preschool or school (better communication between the school and center staff); preferred setting; parent education; parent involvement, parent-staff relationship; and professional involvement.
