2015 Safe Patient Handling and Mobility – Transforming Clinical Practice
Renaissance Hotel, Glendale, AZ

The Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference that was held from April 20 – 24th was a great success.  With an increase in attendance from last year and the addition of the Falls track, everyone commented that there was renewed energy and an excitement in the air.  The ASPHP was one of the conference Sponsors.

PreConference classroom

The ASPHP participated in a large way this year, offering a Novice track within the Pre and Post conference settings.  Our combined presentations were very well-received and we were pleased to offer those who attended a workbook that they could take with them back to their offices for practical use.  Eleven of our Board members and/or CSPHPs instructed one or more presentations.


The ASPHP Annual meeting was also held on the evening of April 21st.  The opening reception was great fun as many interested visitors joined us for conversation, light food and drink.  Later, forty-four members assembled to hear the Annual report, meet the new Board members and thank the outgoing Board members for their contribution to our organization.  It is always gratifying to meet together in a relaxed environment to share our SPHM stories, renew old acquaintances and make new friends.

Colin, Anthony WendyWe were also excited to have our own Colin Brigham receive the 2015 Advocacy Award at this year’s conference.  Colin’s list of accomplishments re: SPHM is very impressive – he has been working on promoting the science and practice since the early 90’s.  He is on top of all legislative activity throughout the country and will, for the second time, provide testimony on Capitol Hill in May.  We are so privileged to have Colin on our Board.  He is a trusted colleague and friend.  Congratulations Colin!!

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.
