    Hi, I recently became the Moving and Handling Coordinator in Wairarapa. Ive been asked to put in my training requests for the next year. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for training and ongoing knowledge updates for me? Conferences etc? I am an experienced Moving and Handling specialist but have not been in a specialist role for 18 years so some updating to do. Any recommendations or suggestions wopuld be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Julia
    Welcome to MHANZ.
    We run events most years that provide opportunities for updating, these usually include overseas speakers, workshops and presentations. We also encourage our members and practitioners, like yourself, to participate in the programme.
    There is a post grad certificate in Moving and Handling available at AUT, course lead is Dr Fiona Trevelyan. This is based on the curriculum from Dr Mike Fray in Loughborough University in the UK. MHANZ, Dr. Fray and ACC were integral to the introduction of this in 2015.
    There is also the Australian AAMHP (Australian Association for the Manual Handling of people http://www.aamhp.org.au/) and their next conference is September 2020 in Adelaide. We provide information on these events in our newsletter and within the website itself so have a good look around.
    Hope that helps!

    Hi Julia,

    I just attended the ASTNZ conference in Auckland last week. There were loads of talks etc going on. I went to a interesting talk on manual handling with reduced care hours. Seemed quite relevant since we faced many care hours recently being reduced here in NZ. Not super relevant for hospital level care but I found it relevant to the community role.
    I can send you the power point if you fancy, might be of use?

    Hi Rebecca,
    Good news Anne is onto that. I have forwarded her the presentation and she mentioned you as her next move to get it uploaded. I imagine she will be in touch shortly.

    Thanks so much.
