Moving and positioning lie within the broader context of manual handling and are a key part of patient care for rehabilitation professionals. Optimum positioning is a good starting point to maximise the benefit of other interventions, such as bed exercises and breathing exercises. It can also assist rest and mobility and, thus, facilitate recovery, enhance function and prevent secondary complications. This course explores the role of the rehabilitation professional in patient positioning and the principles and procedures required to develop competency in safe patient positioning.
This course aims to provide foundational knowledge of safe patient positioning.
