The Moving and Manual Handling People course is to help you establish and understand the risks of moving people.  This could be a patient or an elderly resident.   The course will teach you the best ways to move people safely.

Poor moving and handling technique accounts for a large number of injury reports within the social care sector and health services each year.   Ensuring you have the appropriate training for nurses, carers and anyone else who may be in a position to lift or move people, use best practice and carry out their work with awareness.
