Seminar: Becoming confident in prescribing cot beds for better sleep hygiene, client care and moving and handling
21st March, 10:30am, Seminar Room 2
Synopsis: The seminar will explore the difficulties faced with prescribing paediatric sleeping solutions. It will explore the wider implications on health and day-to-day function whilst examining our nature to care for others. Topics will also highlight future proofing for a child’s needs as they progress, become older, heavier and stronger and how this has an impact on the parents/carers abilities. Parents still want to hold, lift and nurture their child, but is this sustainable when looking at safe moving and handling?
- Have a greater understanding of the wider implication on achieving good sleep hygiene
- Prescribe the most appropriate cot bed for your client
