Moving and handling training films

The moving and handling training team at Cambridge University Hospitals have been busy making a set of fourteen training films for staff at the hospitals. Safe moving and handling of patients and equipment is part of the Trust's mandatory training programme and these films cover a wide range of different moving and handling scenarios. A lot of specialist equipment is used for moving patients, including special beds, chairs, hoists, spreader boards and sliding sheets and it is important for all clinical staff to be familiar with their correct operation.

Media Studio shot and edited the films, working with Sarah Aldred, Moving and Handling Clinical Specialist. The films will relieve pressure on teaching and training time, enabling staff to refresh their knowledge of moving and handling techniques by watching the films online.
