What Really Goes on Behind an SPH Program
While everyone talks about implementing a comprehensive Safe Patient Handling program, rarely is there discussion regarding the barriers to implementation. Registered nurses and other healthcare participants will have the opportunity to view different perspectives on a personal and organizational level that lead to negative aspects of the program.
|11:15 AM– 12:15 PM||
Session 2 (Choose one) — 1.0 CH
What an Effective Labor Management Collaborative Effort Should Look Like
A successful safe patient handling program must include a multi-disciplinary team that together coordinates all aspects of the program. Registered nurses and other healthcare participants will see first-hand how an effective safe patient handling program was put into place.
Facilitating Acceptance of a SPH Program in Your Facility – Hallmarks of a Culture of Safety
A culture of safety is needed in order for an effective SPH program to be implemented and sustained. While many know the component parts of design and operations of a SPH program, little attention is paid as to what and why the program actually gets up and running in a sustainable fashion. This session, geared for the nurse and their colleagues, will discuss the hallmarks of a culture of safety and draw a distinction between those facilities that have a culture of safety and those that do not.
The Combative Patient
A struggle for many healthcare facilities is providing care to aggressive patients and handling staff injuries that may result from interactions with these patients. Workers Compensation costs are increasing due to aggressive patients. Registered nurses and other healthcare participants will be provided with information on programs and controls to help reduce losses.
Healthcare Trends and Issues
Healthcare trends are affecting safe patient handling. Find out how past development of healthcare facilities, and current and future activities impact nurses and other healthcare participants in their everyday practice.
