NHS Blackpool and Lancashire Special Schools train together

Staff from Blackpool Hospitals NHS Trust and Special Schools in Lancashire last week jointly attended an educationally accredited “ Moving and Handling” risk assessor and trainers course to learn how to conduct risk assessments then deliver training to staff in how to move and handle young people. The course comprised of special needs teachers, a paediatric occupational therapist, a paediatric physiotherapist, a paediatric nursing sister so all were able to learn together and share experiences and ideas for meeting the needs of young people needing assistance with being moved and handled. Another example of how Solutions training organises learning for multi disciplinary groups. If you have or know of someone who would benefit from such training contact us now.

Solutions Training and Advisory offer both instructor led train the trainer courses for moving and handling of people as well as moving and handling of objects. E-learning courses are also available, and currently the entire Welsh Ambulance service train their paramedics using Solutions Training e-learning software titled Backs For The Future.
