Moving and Handling Training with
Ethos Education




Handicare's National Patient Handling Advisor, Mark Ripley RGN, will be presenting two Ethos Education workshops in the dedicated 'Handicare Moving & Handling Theatre' at OTAC events during 2019.


Join us on Wednesday 6th February for the first OTAC event of 2019 in Chester...







In Bed Management, 10-11am
After completing this CPD accredited workshop, participants will be able to develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the management of an individual in bed. With a focus on 'Single Handed Care', this workshop 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 repositioning 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 healthcare professionals to enhance the quality of care that their patients receive.



The small things, 2:30-3:30pm


This workshop will examine several moving and handling tasks and, how if we make subtle technique 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 sense 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 having a substantial impact on ‘Single Handed Care’.
