Single Handed Care Training with a Bariatric Focus

OT training

Join us for one of two FREE bariatric focus single-handed care CPD qualifying training sessions for Brent council

 

Designed exclusively for occupational therapists.

 

Undertaking daily care routines and moving & handling for bariatric clients is more complicated, takes longer and there is an increased risk of injury for the user and the care team alike. This CPD qualifying training session covers the latest techniques to assist in making these tasks more efficient and safer for everyone involved.

 

The term bariatric refers to a form of medicine that deals with health issues relating to extreme obesity. Obesity is a significant & growing public health problem in the UK, with the majority of people either being overweight or obese. Over 67% of men are either overweight or obese and 60% of women. This includes 26% of men and 29% of women who are obese – and the figures are steadily rising year on year!

Our two sessions are on the 23rd of November 2023

The first session runs from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM, followed by the second session from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM.
