'Key Trainer' Advanced Skills Workshops – New Public Courses in 2018
Monday, 11th December 2017
These one day ‘key trainer’ workshops have been designed to reflect changes within the care sector and to further advance the moving and handling and risk assessing skills and knowledge of EDGE-trained key trainers.
The workshops will focus on the following topics:
Single -handed Care Packages
Discussing the complexities of the risk assessment process and subsequent decisions which need to be very carefully considered when delivering single handed care packages to reduce hazards to both the client and the staff. Delegates will practise safe handling techniques using appropriate equipment.
Complex People Handling Risk Assessment
Discussing how to undertake risk assessments, select the correct equipment and make the best decisions regarding moving and handling techniques when delivering profoundly complex care packages in the community and in care home/supported living environments. Delegates will complete a complex people handling risk assessment during this session.
Discussing the most appropriate way of moving and handling obese or severely obese individuals whose biomechanics may be altered. Using a ‘bariatric empathy suit’ to recreate the moving and handling of a larger person to best effect, delegates will practise safe handling techniques using specialist equipment.
Manual Handling of Very Complex Care Needs
Discussing how to undertake risk assessments, select the correct equipment and make the best decisions regarding moving and handling techniques for adult clients who have profoundly complex care packages for example: spinal injuries, a complex diagnosis like Huntington’s Disease, cerebral palsy etc. Delegates will practise safe handling techniques using appropriate equipment.
