Patient Handling Workshop
May 4th at the Italian Cultural Centre, Vancouver
Shoppers Home Health Care and WorkSafeBC are hosting this half-day hands-on workshop for directors of care, floor supervisors and trainers, care aides and other front line staff who provide direct patient care. Attendees will receive instruction from professional trainers on the use of ceiling and floor lifts and other transfer assist devices, and will be required to practice transfers and repositioning tasks using the equipment.
The goal of the workshop is to improve workers' skills using the equipment - skills they can then take back to their facility to share with their coworkers.
