Mark your calendar for the upcoming continuing education
program, “Best Practices for Safe Patient Handling and Mobility: Standards &
Technology”, July 18 at 2-3p.m. ET
. The webinar is a joint effort of the American Nurses Association
and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Nurses can sustain serious and long-term injuries as a result of manually
lifting and transferring patients. Patients can suffer injuries as well.
Hospital, long term, and home care all present specific challenges to safe
patient handling and mobility. Interprofessional standards are now available to
guide healthcare professionals on safe patient handling and mobility.
Join us for this one-time free webinar to learn about these
new standards and existing medical devices that can save your back and get your
patients moving safely again! 1.0 contact hour will be awarded to nurses who
successfully complete this CNE activity.
