Demonstration Assessment

This pretty much happens straight after the core exercises. It is important to have someone nominated to welcome the volunteer while you are finishing off the core exercises. You can do it but it just adds stress to your day.

This video will walk you through the key components of what needs to be demonstrated. Your patient may not know much about the program or what is happening so it is always a good idea to spend a few minutes explaining what is about to happen.

The second thing I like to do is to get the patient on board by instilling confidence and authority – I also like to say that I will be moving them along quite fast in front of the group. Giving this warning in advance gives me the opportunity to cut them short if they are the kind of person to ramble without damaging the rapport.

Below in the video you will see the assessment sheet attachments. Print them out for use on the day. For your demo assessment, it’s also a good idea to have all your equipment set up and ready before you bring your patient into the group room.
