Mark has been involved with many areas of people handling including plus size, spinal injuries, brain injuries and also has experience in the design of equipment - especially slings.
Whilst still being a director of the business, he continues to deliver a number of Level 3 award “Train the Trainer” courses annually and consults on more complicated issues that face his customers.
Mark is focused on improving the hoisting experience for both residents and staff alike, and is a firm believer in sharing best practices to improve care for everyone.
Exploring new ideas, techniques and attitudes towards the hoisting of people in care:
Do we over complicate hoisting? Do we handle people too much? Can we simplify the tasks and improve the experience for the person being hoisted? And can we make hoisting safer for all involved in the task?
Moving & Handling Lab (Theatre 11), 11:00 - 11:30, Thursday 26th.
