Dr. Barry Carlin will make a presentation at the The National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 2:00 PM.-3:00 PM (Eastern) and 11:00 AM-Noon (Pacific)
Dr. Carlin has been a highly rated ErgoExpo speaker for many years, and each presentation he delivers is dynamic, thought provoking and actionable.
This webinar presentation will identify key problems that caregivers face, issues that cause them to experience pain to the point of reduced productivity and safety, compromises the quality of patient care, and leads to expensive workplace injuries. Healthcare providers perform a multitude of tasks that can cause injury. They often begin shifts with prolonged or repetitive bending motions while washing, changing, and feeding patients. The prolonged bending is often followed by lifting as patients are taken to be bathed, dressed or to medical procedures. The results are discomfort, muscle tension and disc distortion, resulting in their backs becoming prone to discomfort and injury from even non-strenuous activity.
These issues can be addressed with actionable solutions, during this webinar, you will learn the specific skills to significantly reduce caregiver risk including:
The "Lean, bend and stand" technique that minimizes spinal flexion.
A three second stretch that reduces tension or corrects disc distortion
How to influence caregivers to always use the best technique for patient lifting, even in difficult situations including dealing with patients that are obese, combative, or who have fallen
