Abstract

Injuries associated with patient handling activities are common in healthcare and cost the NHS more than 80 m pounds sterling a year. Improving education and training can help prevent injury, and better communication between education and clinical areas will improve monitoring of poor patient handling practice. This article discusses Birmingham City University's approach to patient handling education for pre-registration student nurses.
