Evidence points to better patient outcomes with high numbers of repetitions, high exercise intensity and more frequent activities. This can be challenging to achieve with patients with multiple or severe movement impairments, or those who are heavy and/or dependent and deconditioned. Get your patients doing more - Early mobility, fall prevention, neuroplasticity, bariatrics, appropriate dosing of therapeutic interventions and more! This one day course will allow you to explore how safe patient handling and mobility equipment can be utilized during therapy interventions, to achieve high repetitions, salient activities, patient engagement, aerobic exercise, and error-allowance during rehabilitation activities, all without the fear of patient or therapist injury. Through a mix of didactic presentation, facilitated group discussion, and hands-on learning opportunities, participants will identify safe patient handling solutions to challenging cases using a spectrum of equipment and devices across the continuum of care. Additional content will explore the process of obtaining equipment in your facility, and the therapist’s role in safe patient handling programs. Real patients will be volunteering to help maximize the learning experience.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Appraise current therapy practice related to current evidence for repetition, intensity, saliency and task-specific, goal oriented interventions.
2. Correctly Identify at least 2 limitations of manual handling techniques for therapeutic interventions that would be overcome with safe patient mobility equipment
3. Integrate SPHM equipment into 3 treatment interventions in a simulated patient case
4. Provide justification for procuring safe patient mobility equipment to administrators
