A transfer can be viewed as the safe movement of a person from one place or surface to another. Transfers provide an opportunity to train an individual to enhance independent function. Transfers require varying levels of assistance, from stand-by assistance to maximum assistance. They may also require assistive devices such as sit-to-stand devices or hoists. This course will explore the role of patient transfers and the principles and procedures required to develop competency in patient transfers.
