While nurses have the responsibility to safely handle their patients during ambulation, transfer, and the normal course of care, they do not always know the best practices for doing so safely. This webinar provides an overview of the new Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) National Standards. The ground-breaking multi-disciplinary effort to create the standards was spearheaded by ANA during 2012 and the document will be published in early 2013. The speaker will highlight key components and describe how the standards can be implemented to reduce injury and improve workplace health and safety.
Following the webinar, attendees will be able to:
1) Describe key components ANA’s multi-disciplinary Safe Patient Handling and Mobility standards.
2) Identify ways to implement the standards into their nursing practice in order to improve workplace safety and reduce
musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace.
