Skills for Health CSTF aligned moving and handling online training course

The content of this online moving and handling training course has been mapped to the UK Core Skills Training Framework (Skills for Health CSTF aligned). This activity has been accredited by The CPD Certification Service and equates to 2 hours of continuing professional development (CPD).

Why is patient moving and handling training essential?

Healthcare settings can pose significant moving and handling challenges and risks. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders, including manual handling injuries, are the most common type of occupational ill health in the UK (Health and Safety Executive 2011).

Given nature, type and frequency of moving and handling activities undertaken the risks of injury to staff and patients are considerable and need to be minimised. As part of health and safety at work requirements, employers are expected to provide training on crucial health and safety risks, and this has been supplemented with additional guidance covering the specific activity of moving and handling.

This moving and handling e-learning course was developed to meet the required learning outcomes in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) recommendations for health and social care providers.

Aims and objectives of this patient moving and handling course

The aims and objectives of this patient moving and handling training course are to:

  • To provide a clear understanding of the legislation regarding moving and handling,
  • To help learners understand the risks of poor practice,
  • To provide an awareness of recommended ergonomic techniques to minimise manual handling injuries in practice, and
  • To inform learners how to carry out manual handling tasks safely.

Load Handling Staff

Staff involved as part of their duties in the moving and handling of inanimate loads will require principle-based practical instruction on strategies and approaches for safely moving and handling inanimate loads, relevant to their role in the organisation.

Level 2: Those staff groups, including unpaid and voluntary staff, whose role involves patient handling activities

Patient Handling Staff In addition to the learning outcomes listed for all employees, staff identified as being involved in patient handling activities will be required to meet the following additional outcomes. The learner will:

  • Know how to provide patients with the best quality care using appropriate, safe and dignified moving and handling strategies
  • Understand normal human movement patterns as a prerequisite to moving and handling people
  • Understand how multidisciplinary team communication and risk assessments ensure the safe handling of patients.

Staff involved as part of their duties in the moving and handling of patients will require principle-based practical instruction on strategies and approaches for safely moving and handling patients, relevant to their role in the organisation:

  • chair moves and transfers
  • bed/trolley/table moves and transfers
  • mobility
  • managing the falling/fallen patient
  • use of equipment available within the organisation, e.g. profiling beds, patient hoists and slings, bathing aids, sliding and transferring systems, small handling aids to promote independence.

Training should be supported with practical instruction and competence assessment by workplace supervisors in the use of any mechanical aids provided for undertaking Moving and Handling tasks.

NB: Additional learning outcomes, or specific training, may be necessary to meet the particular needs or function of individual organisations. These should be determined by local risk assessment and policy. It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that their staff attend the necessary practical training/assessments in line with local policies and procedures.
