Themed Module - Handling Heavier Clients
Themed modules will focus on looking at a specific topic / key area of interest; the content for these workshops will be taken from each of the core modules that specifically relates to the chosen area of interest.
Looking at ways of reducing the load for the carer and activating the user, participants in
this workshop will get an understanding and awareness of potential solutions available.
The workshop will look at various turning and repositioning solutions in the bed,
alternative methods of sling application, as well as transfer solutions for the weight
bearing person, covering simple to the more complex solutions, which aim to reduce
load bearing for the carer and maintain the dignity of the individual concerned.
This workshop can include the use of an empathy suit to give delegates a greater
understanding of the challenges faced by heavier clients when performing specific tasks.
Half day: 3 hour workshop
