Deep Brain Stimulators and the New DST

Up to Children's continuing care - good practice

Good morning,

I am wonderining if anyone can suggest where they would record information in the 2016 DST about Deep Brain Stimulators. In the draft I have completed for a patient I have recorded it in the Drugs, therapies and meds section to acknowledge it but it may be best placed elsewhere.

Many thanks

DH is planning to do a brief review of the framework, to gauge user views, pick up any small tweaks and changes which might be helpful (not a further full-scale revision however). I will post a formal call for feedback shortly. This sounds like an area we might want to ensure is reflected.

In passing, I would suggest that perhaps you should be guided by nature of their need here, rather than reflect the equipment they are using - what's the therapy for?

That's great news Gareth and we would be happy to feedback our experiences so far,

Does anyone have a definition of "exceptionality" that they use in relation to Continuing care framework?
