This course looks at the benefits of single-handed care and reducing care packages to all stakeholders and considers all types of users whether their needs are simple or complex. It looks at risk control; current legislation; and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) and how using correct techniques and appropriate equipment can help reduce the number of carers needed across a range of everyday moving and handling tasks. There is a particular focus on care at home; turning in bed and sit to stand. The course is theory based with practical demonstrations of techniques and equipment for different tasks.
