Back care project is given funding

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The Royal College of Nursing, in partnership with Backcare and Arjo, has been awarded £50,000 as part of a government initiative to help promote better back care at work. The project, “Changing Practice – improving health”, will look at developing back injury prevention programmes for nursing staff in small and medium-sized nursing homes. Initially based in four nursing homes, information from the pilot project will enable the partners to develop a toolkit for the nursing and residential home sector, highlighting best practice for both employers and nursing staff.
