The ethos education programme philosophy Moving and handling CPD accredited workshops Confidence through hands-on, professional training As a global supplier of equipment that is designed to make everyday life easier for the elderly, disabled or those providing care and support, Handicare are acutely aware that, for equipment to be used to its full potential, those using it must have an understanding of everything a piece of equipment can do and how it should be used. Handicare’s CPD accredited Ethos Education Programme underpins this belief by providing practical tips and techniques supported by theory-based learning for a wide range of people including those responsible for specifying, installing or using Handicare equipment. The programme provides access to 5 CPD accredited workshops that will encourage you to review current practices to ensure client safety, completely free of charge.* Through an Ethos Education workshop you will be able to gain a greater understanding of core principles and application of assistive technology, allowing you to use equipment to its full potential and prescribe the best solution, within either a single or multi carer environments. The workshops provide you with an opportunity to consider your individual circumstances and how you could utilise this knowledge to reduce your risk of injury whilst improving the transfer/ re-positioning experience for those within your care. “As expected there is such an appetite for this approach of training and everyoneappears keen to share their new found understanding and principles.” Hannah Bagatelas, Trust Lead Occupational Therapist, Yeovil District Hospital *We are pleased to offer the Ethos Education Programme completely free of charge for healthcare professionals.
