Core workshops

In bed management

After completing this workshop, participants will be able to develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the management of an individual in bed. This will include best practice whilst looking at posture and positioning when profiling / sitting up in bed, moving across and up the bed and turning and re-positioning an individual in bed. From activating and enabling the more independent individual to solutions for the more passive person, participants will gain an understanding of a range of equipment and solutions that will assist health care professionals to enhance the quality of care that their patients receive.  Click here to request a booking for this workshop.

Sit-to-stand

This workshop will provide participants with a theoretical and practical understanding of the key principles for a sit-to-stand and a stand-to-sit. The workshop will focus on the core skills of a sit-to-stand and the importance of the use of core skills and principles when working with assistive devices to achieve a sit-to-stand. Focus will be given to clients that require assistance for sit-to-stand – from minimal assistance through to the use of a stand-aid.  Click here to request a booking for this workshop.

Hoist selection and sling application

The ‘Hoists & Slings Application’ workshop will provide participants with information to select the appropriate hoist, the use and functions of the hoist along with assessment and application of slings. With an emphasis on best practice, participants will have the opportunity to practice a variety of sling application and hoisting techniques and by the end of the training workshop, we aim to have increased participants confidence of their ability to perform a hoist and sling assessment.  Click here to request a booking for this workshop.

Themed workshops

Moving and enabling – single handed care
