Moving patients into and out of beds, chairs, and bathrooms without proper equipment is dangerous work for healthcare providers and can adversely affect patients. Research has proven that special techniques or equipment can prevent injuries, but the healthcare field has been slow to adopt safe patient handling and mobility (SPHM) practices. The 2019 Safe Patient Handling and Mobility/Falls Conference aims to change that.
The Conference addresses the SPHM needs of healthcare providers from novices to experts, from direct health care providers to risk managers, from educators to managers, from industrial hygienists/safety professionals to researchers of any discipline who are interested in advancing safety for patients and caregivers.
Experts in the field will provide cutting edge research, best practices, and lessons learned in SPHM and in fall and fall injury prevention.
