Manual Handling Children's Healthcare Training

Moving and Handling, Postural Care & Tissue Viability Children’s Healthcare Training

Three important topics have been brought together for this interactive session.

Moving and Handling

The moves we teach are based around ensuring the movement you do causes the least discomfort for both the child or young person and the person performing the move. With our in-house manual handling equipment learners will have the opportunity to practice all of the moves that have been taught.

Postural Care

It is known that for those children affected by conditions that reduce the balance and symmetry of their movements they are more likely to develop conditions such as scoliosis and pain.

This element of the courses therefore will teach the principles of positive positioning to promote balance and symmetry.

Tissue Viability

A further important factor when it comes to positioning is understanding tissue viability and pressure sore prevention.

This aspect of the course will cover the principles of pressure sores and the steps that can be taken to prevent them in children and young people.

This content has been aligned with the skills for health core skills training framework.
