Course description

This course will be delivered via an Online TEAMS meeting and you will not be expected to attend a specific venue.

This is a remotely delivered course and delegates should therefore ignore any map or venue information.

This course provides delegates with knowledge of safe moving and handling techniques and a basic knowledge of equipment they may need to use to safely move and handle a client. This course does not cover clients with restricted mobility issues, i.e. those who need hoisting or are cared for in bed.

• Anatomy of the spine and how to reduce the risk of spinal injury by implementing safe handling principles
• The importance of good sitting posture
• Knowledge of a range of safe moving and handling assisted mobility techniques, i.e. assisted standing techniques
• Techniques to assist someone getting in and out of a bed.

There is also a link to a Microsoft form which must be completed following your attendance. This will be assessed by the trainer and summative feedback sent to you. Please complete the Microsoft form within 5 working days after the course date. Only your first submission will be looked at, please only submit once.
