How can I start a Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) program at my facility?
The task of initiating a SPHM program can be daunting. Creating a foundation for success now will help you realize your goals sooner. Hillrom can help with our Program Development Workshop offered through the Safe Transfers and Movement™ Program. The objective of this workshop, working with your key stakeholders, is to define and create a SPH program customized to your organization’s goals and objectives. Led by one of Hillrom’s Directors of Programs and Services for SPHM, your team will be guided through:
- Create a foundation on the value of a SPH Program Plan and review theory-driven approaches to create and sustain change in your practice
- Develop customized SPH policy and procedures for implementation
- Develop operational processes to support your program
- Create education schedules based on materials in the Safe Transfers and Movement™ Program
