This book has been developed to provide a practical guide to safer moving and handling in the Perioperative Environment. Techniques and equipment are illustrated throughout.
Nicky Sharpe, Kath Briody and Simon Love are experienced manual handling practitioners and are all members of the Northern Theatre Special Interest group. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to this publication, which is the first to pull together best practice in moving and handling in Perioperative environment into one book.
Both this publication and NBE’s previous publication in the Professional Series are useful tools to allow Back Care Advisors and Managers to undertake baseline assessments and to produce evidenced based information to show that their organisations are complying with legislation and meeting the requirements of both the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and NHSLA assessments.
This book is a must for any practitioner working in or advising on manual handling in Theatres.
