In this webinar explore how a systems perspective on patient handling as it relates to patient and staff safety, including organizational strategy, policies/procedures, models of care, staff “behavior”/buy-in, and the design of the environment. A successful safe patient handling and mobility program requires buy-in, an effective materials and equipment system, and guidance on the appropriate equipment solutions to enhance patient mobility.
