My experience in manual handling began in 1991 delivering manual handling training to care home staff in Leeds. Since then I have trained staff from a wide variety of organisations throughout the UK and abroad. Although I still undertake training of care staff within care homes the scope of my manual handling experience has developed to having organisational and strategic responsibilities.
I regularly update and consolidate my professional development by attending conferences, being chairman of the Yorkshire Branch of the National Back Exchange (YBE) for 5 years, being an active member of the product review panel of National Back Exchange (NBE) for 4 years, being on the Executive committee for the past 2 years and fulfilling all the requirements of my CPD to maintain my Advanced Members status within NBE.
I was elected as Chairman of National Back Exchange in September 2018 and look forward to the challenge that this brings.
The seminar will give an insight into what we been taught in the past and how this could adversely affect perceptions and recovery from episodes of back pain in the future.
This is a fun and interactive session which gives participants an experiential understanding of how their bodies can function either efficiently or inefficiently.
