This Paediatric Manual Handling training course has been designed especially for staff working with the children in various settings such as nurseries, hospitals, residential and community settings, where the moving and handling of children and young people is part of the daily routine.
The course contains definitions on manual handling, the types of injuries you can receive due to incorrect practice, and basic anatomy of the spine and muscles within the body. Factors which contribute to safer handling and good base movement are also covered.
The course looks into different hoists and swings and will discuss their uses, limitations and correct ways to apply them. This module is valid for 12 months and all staff have annual refreshers with certificates issued on successful completion.
