Handicare's CPD Accredited Moving & Handling Seminar and Workshop - showing at OTAC across the UK throughout 2019

About this Event

Morning session: (Speaker - Mark Ripley)

Bed migration /Clients sliding down the bed

With a focus on ‘Single Handed Care’, this CPD accredited seminar will focus on the effects of working with a profiling bed / mattress elevator and the impact this may have on the client, including eating, drinking, breathing, comfort and skin integrity.

We will look at bed migration (sliding down the bed) - how and why people migrate down the bed and the impact this has on both client and carer / carers. Solutions will be explored that can reduce sliding down the bed for the more active to passive clients, reducing the number of times that they have to be re-positioned up the bed by the carers.

Afternoon session: (Mark Ripley)

The small things.

The afternoon workshop will examine several moving and handling tasks and, how if we make subtle changes or introduce small items of equipment, we can reduce the effort required to complete the task - increasing an individual’s confidence and giving them a feeling of achievement.

It is often the small things we do that can significantly assist with an individual’s enablement; enabling them to become more independent and potentially have a substantial impact on ‘Single Handed Care’.
