ASPHP Webinars

Facilitating a Safe Environment of Care through Design:  Ergonomics and more

April 8, 2015 2PM Eastern

Presented by:  Mary W. Matz, MSPH, CPE, CSPHP

Only recently (2010) has the design community included the need for patient handling technology in the design of new and renovation of existing buildings. Informing project design teams early-on of considerations that must be included in the design is critical.  Utilization of these design considerations are not only to ensure inclusion of patient lifting equipment but to ensure incorporation of criteria that will impact the use of the equipment by staff, thus the benefit and value of the equipment.  Tools such as the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) Patient Handling and Movement Assessment (PHAMA) and the newly released Center for Health Design (CHD) Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) facilitate this. However, in many cases there still must be leadership and design team acceptance and support to use these tools. Tips for gaining leadership/designer support for such inclusion are included in this presentation

Our Regional Events are proving to be very successful.  It seems that each event we hold teaches us more about the successes that are realized in pursuit of safe patient handling practices and the need for information and practical education that remains.  We also have learned that the regional events are appreciated for their easy access and valuable contacts that can be made in addition to the fine quality of the presentations.  And, for the same reasons, the exhibitors are happy to attend these events as well – making it a win-win situation for everyone.
