Competent Mover Foundation Course

This workshop is an ideal first step for any person working in healthcare who would like to ensure they are up to date with current moving and handling practice. It is a pre-requisite for those who would like to attend our assessment and training masterclass. It is also great for healthcare workers who require an in-depth orientation prior to starting back in the industry. It is recommended for those working in hospital level care and is also a very good day for those in rest home level of care as they will be faced with less mobile residents from time to time.

What is covered?

  • Risk assessment in a healthcare setting – how to keep residents, ourselves and our colleagues safe.
  • Goals of movement.
  • Safe normal movement – how our bodies, and those of our residents, are meant to move for optimal function and minimal injury
  • All key transfers and most common pieces of equipment will be covered in a practical and engaging session
