Dr. Dwayne Van Eerd will present on the evidence from the scientific literature with a focus on practical guidance related to client/patient handling. Dwayne has been involved in systematic reviews of the literature on prevention of occupational injuries, including a review on “Interventions in health-care settings to protect musculoskeletal health” (Tullar et al.). Using this as a starting point, Dwayne will provide an up to date view of the evidence from the literature.
This is a free webinar offered through the client/patient handling community of practice (CoP), presented in partnership with CRE-MSD and PSHSA.
