Moving and handling can often feel daunting, particularly for bathing, when the perceived risks created by the environment often lead to alternative recommendations.  This session looks to break down some of those barriers, using equipment to consider clinical scenarios and find realistic solutions, whilst supporting meaningful, occupational bathing.

Learning objectives

• Consider the risk assessment process and application for bathing

• Review moving and handling challenges for bath transfers

• Reflect on how equipment can support bathing for the person with handling and postural needs
