DLF is delighted to announce our return to Newcastle for Moving & Handling People North 2017, offering delegates an alternative venue and programme to our long-standing London-based conference.
Moving & Handling People North is aimed at health and social care professionals managing and providing hands-on practical care. The two-day event enables practitioners to widen their experience and knowledge to deliver efficient, safe practice through improved performance and techniques and is an unmissable opportunity for you to be inspired and make lasting improvements in client and carer safety.
Moving and handling practitioners require a range of skills and must often assess situations rapidly in less than ideal situations. Practitioners must feel confident in their assessments and recommended solutions, including the choice and application of equipment. M&HP North will empower practitioners to make the right decisions in a range of situations.
Moving and handling risk assessments often involve engagement with informal carers, relatives and other professionals as well as the client. The interactive practical workshops will consider the process from assessment to hands-on techniques providing delegates with guidance to make reasoned decisions while also reviewing their own handling practices.
Moving & Handling People North is an unmissable opportunity for you to be inspired and make lasting improvements in client and carer safety.
N.B. One delegate place may be shared between two people attending on different days.
Delegates will also receive 1 year’s FREE subscription to the moving & handling section of DLF Data saving them up to £525 + VAT.
Taking place over two content-packed days, our 2017 programme will tackle the most urgent issues facing moving and handling practitioners and will incorporate topics suggested by previous Moving & Handling People attendees.
It will repeat the trusted MHP formula of four practical hands-on workshops, four seminars, two keynote plenary sessions plus the Open Forum plenary session at the end of Wednesday.
The role of a moving and handling practitioner can include practical advice, training, risk assessments, equipment selection and service management. This requires a breadth of knowledge and practical skills which the Moving & Handling People North programme will reinforce.
It will provide solutions and guidance, foregrounding dignity and safety, based on legislation, the outcomes of legal cases, risk assessments and common sense. A variety of settings are considered, from community to acute. There will also be opportunities for discussion and peer review.
Delegates attend all sessions and are encouraged to bring along issues confronting them to be raised in the Open Forum at the end of the first day.
While the great majority of NHS care is of a very high clinical standard, and serious failures are rare, they nevertheless do occur and can have devastating consequences. Such failures often display strong similarities to previous incidents and, in some cases, almost exactly replicate them.
This keynote session delivered by Dr Mike Fray will look at creating a culture supportive of staff reporting these ‘adverse events’ and consider how learning from them can be encouraged.
