Course Reviews


Safe patient handling and mobility involve using assistive devices to ensure that patients can be mobilised safely and that care providers avoid performing high-risk manual patient handling tasks. The use of these devices reduces the risk of injury for care providers and improves the safety and quality of patient care.

If you work as a carer for people with limited strength or mobility, you will be required to assist them in moving around. This could involve helping them get out of bed, sit or stand up, and even walk from one room to another. Although it may seem simple, aiding people in their movements requires specific skills.

When not performed correctly, patient handling can lead to serious harm for both parties, such as back pain, musculoskeletal disorders, avoidable accidents, and patient injury.
