Reply To: Manual handling training for doctors?

Angela Greetham

Hi Michelle,
The BOPDHB do not train any doctors/medical team in moving and handling techniques, but we do have a system set up with the theatre staff that performs a 3 monthly training session for all. I have 2 dedicated champions who work in theatre and recovery who help with theses sessions. We show the staff the Hover Products, slings and techniques for pronging, using the spinal table and lateral transfers.
