Manual Handling in Aged Care Facilities: A Bariatric Focus

Health workers in aged care facilities are likely to need to understand the specific manual handling requirements of bariatric clients to ensure their physical health is maintained. Geniene will present information on:

  • relevant manual handling legislation
  • evidence-based practice
