Seminar Title: Supporting people in lying – practical solutions to common difficulties

During this practical session we will explore the reasons why people adopt destructive positions at night time. Consideration will be given to the long
term impact of these destructive postures and the associated difficulties which may arise from them. Time during the session will be spent looking at practical ways in which people can be supported in less destructive and even corrective postures. We will use a range of equipment and will look at supporting people on their back, side and front. Attendees will gain an insight into the potentially harmful effects of destructive lying postures but also have an opportunity to try supporting lying for themselves and to problem solve some common sense, comfortable solutions.

Moving & Handling Lab (Theatre 11), 13:15 - 13:45, Thursday 26th.
