Moving & Handling
Basic training for Carers in a Social Care Setting
We offer a moving and handling course over one day, preferably in the Carer's work setting. It is not necessary to have any previous training to do this course.
This course is suitable for all health and social care professionals, i.e. staff in care homes, agency nursing staff, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, health practitioners, paramedics, teachers and home carers.
The moving and handling courses carried out by First Aid for You in Sussex cover:
- Basic A&P (Anatomy and Physiology)
- Back Care awareness
- Risk Assessment using either TILE or ELITE mnemonics
- PRACTICAL use of equipment as used by the participant
- Updates as required
Our courses are designed to be flexible so if you are in Sussex and would like a moving and handling course tailored for you, at a venue of your own choice, please contact us.
