This conference will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and attitudes for making healthcare safer for all healthcare workers and patients. The ultimate goal is for universal safe patient handling and safe mobility in all health care settings. Participants will be exposed to cutting edge research, best practices, and lessons learned in safe patient handling and mobility-related adverse events such as patient falls and fall-related injuries. This conference includes diverse learning opportunities, including plenary and concurrent sessions, workshops, 'hands on" practice sessions, and a large exhibit hall with new and emerging technology.
This conference is designed to meet the needs of direct health care providers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, managers, administrators, risk managers, educators, industrial hygienists/safety professionals, and researchers of any discipline who are interested in advancing safety for patients and caregivers.
Upon completion of this program, the participant should be able to:
Apply research and clinical evidence for reducing patient handling risks to caregivers
Evaluate technological solutions for safe patient handling and falls management
Incorporate best practices and patient preferences into rehabilitation to improve function and reduce patient adverse events associated with immobility
