Event Details

By completing this course you will feel confident in prescribing full lifting hoists including hoists, spreader bar and slings. You will rediscover risk assessment as a creative process that involves taking positive risks, solving problems and finding innovative solutions to problems. Risk assessment will suddenly start to become a valuable clinical reasoning resource so you know the best decision to make from a variety of options so you won’t second guess yourself. You will start to become confident in knowing the hoists available to you and what factors make one hoist different to the other. You will discover all the opportunities to avoid manual handling that you may not have noticed before, just by the way you prescribe a hoist as well as the way you use it.

This will save you a significant amount of time in prescribing hoists knowing what hoist is likely to suit a client before you ever see them. You will become clearer with regards the loan pool of hoists you have, being able to organize them to get the best use out of the resource you have and best direct them to the specific client needs.

You will be clear on what makes one spreader bar different to the other. You will become a dynamic prescriber of slings where you will be aware of all the resources equipment companies can provide to you in solving manual handling problems. You will have a new perspective on all the features that are on equipment that you may have never noticed before as well as clever manual handling tricks to make life easier.
