Training course: Patient lifting and transferring techniques - Train the trainer
Reference persons and internal trainers are ideally suited to assist with the development and implementation of back injury prevention policies.
- Train reference persons to provide support with the implementation of back injury prevention policies within their respective departments
- Train trainers to ensure they can effectively establish prevention policies and conduct internal training
How does it work?
- Within the hospital or (residential) care facility
- 10-12 participants (maximum 16) per training course
- 5 days for reference persons
- 6 days for the ‘train the trainer’ course
- Reference persons will be able to:
- act as a first point of contact within their department or division when it comes to back injury prevention;
- offer solutions for patient or resident lifting and transferring where a lot of stress is placed on the body;
- raise awareness among co-workers about back injury prevention and correct their techniques as needed;
- assist the internal trainer (if available at the facility) with the implementation of back injury prevention policies and patient lifting protocols.
- Internal trainers will be able to:
- initiate and direct the development of a prevention policy together with the policy administrator;
- train workers in the field of patient or resident lifting and transferring techniques, and handling and lifting techniques for non-caretaking duties (kitchen work, cleaning duties, meal serving, etc.);
- assist reference persons (if available at the facility) in difficult situations and help find solutions for specific problems in the workplace;
- establish joint and individual lifting protocols;
- offer advice regarding the purchase of materials and equipment.
