Chiltern offers bespoke courses for care sector


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

Moving and handling equipment supplier and manufacturer Chiltern Invadex has developed a package of bespoke training courses for the care sector to help promote the safety of both patient and carer. Facilitated by moving and handling trainer Debra Hall, the courses are designed for a maximum of eight participants and combine both theoretical and practical aspects of moving and handling. Half or full-day programmes are available and maybe provided on the company¹s premises or at one of Chiltern Invadex¹s regional centres. Each course is created to meet the needs of the participants, whether they work in the homecare sector or in a care home, and examines the environments in which work is undertaken and equipment available locally. Theoretical aspects covered include back care, risk assessment and legislation and its relevance to staff and management. Practical sessions are geared towards the safe moving and handling of specific individuals or client groups. All delegates receive a certification of attendance
