This manual handling course has been designed to ensure each member of your training team is delivering up to date moving and handling training and risk assessment so that, risks are reduced, to both employees and patients, mitigating your risk to claims and litigation.
The course centres on improving patient handling by combining the use of criterion based risk assessment with current best practice handling techniques and of new handling aids designed to reduce risk.
This course stimulates an ideal climate for change to attitudes, practices and motivation which is fast becoming essential to improving trainer performance in the work place.
Participants discover new ways to inspire their trainees to move and handle patients in a manner that requires far less physical effort, affords greater dignity and hugely improves confidence in both emergency and non emergency environments.
This programme was originally designed and has been subsequently developed with the input of ambulance staff from many ambulance trusts. Wherever possible it mirrors current best practice with other health care professionals and the UK fire and rescue services.
