Complex Care Needs (Manual Handling) - Key Trainer's Workshop

Course Overview

This one day workshop will advise you in the skills of handling adult clients who have complex care packages. It is designed for those who might be bed-bound with very dependent care needs. They may be clients with conditions that involve involuntary movements, limb contractions etc. However, due to the medical complexities we are unable to advise on clients who are intubated/ventilated or who have complex spinal injuries.

Who Will Benefit?

This one day workshop is designed for staff who hold a current 'key-trainer' people handling and risk assessment certificate from EDGE Services. This is an add-on session for EDGE- trained key-trainers who require guidance on more complex handling.

Assessment and Certification

Course assessment comprises:

  • a practical skills assessment by the EDGE trainer.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of achievement from EDGE Services which is valid for two years.

Course Aims and Intended Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will:

  • have a better understanding of equipment and techniques to help manage manual handling tasks for complex care cases;
  • understand the principles behind effective risk assessing of manual handling activities for complex care packages.

Post-Training Support

Valid for the duration of your certificate, this unique service provides invaluable support to you after the course has finished. Our helpful trainers are available to answer any queries you may have once you return to work.
