Moving & Assisting People Introduction

Full Day 6-Hour Course – Moving and Assisting People (Manual Handling) at The Redlands Centre, Banbury, Oxfordshire.

This course is designed to offer all candidates a full day on Moving and Assisting People. It is suitable for all those entering the Care Industry, including those who have no previous knowledge of the subject. Certificates of Training are valid for 3 years (CQC recommends refresher courses once a year).

Poor moving and handling practice can lead to:

  • Back pain and musculoskeletal disorders, which can lead to an inability to work.
  • Moving and handling accidents – which can injure both the person being moved and the employee.
  • Discomfort and a lack of dignity for the person being moved.

The moving and handling of people is a regular task in health and social care, which if not done safely, can cause serious injury to service users and staff.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this essential course you will be able to:

  • Recognise the law and relevant legislation
  • Recognise the impact of back injury
  • Identify different musculoskeletal injuries and how joints are affected
  • Solve basic problems with risk assessment
  • Compare the consequences of good back care and the lack of it
  • Demonstrate how to use various equipment for moving and assisting people
  • Demonstrate how to use slide sheets
  • Demonstrate how to check slings and wheelchairs
  • Demonstrate sit-to-stand techniques, floor-to-standing techniques
  • Operate a hoist confidently using relevant sling and settings
  • Recognise the importance of good Record Keeping
  • Identify different types of moving and assisting techniques and utilise alternatives when necessary

Games, discussion and activities are used throughout the day to embed learning and support all types of learning styles.  All learners will be expected to participate in demonstrating their knowledge of hoists and slings, they will all be expected to demonstrate how to use a slide sheet and they are encouraged to hoist each other so that they can experience the sensation of their service users.

The format of the day will be predominantly written and PP in the morning and physical activities in the afternoon. All participants are expected to stay for the entire session and cannot be offered a certificate of competence without completing the course due to the nature of the training.

If available, other equipment such as Re-Turn, wheelchair, walking frames, etc can be readily incorporated into the day’s learning.

A  PDF Certificate of competence will be issued via email to all participants who complete the course. The certificate is valid for 3 years. Please note that you are recommended to refresh your knowledge annually.
