Common mistakes when solving manual handling problems and how to avoid them

This webinar is for health professionals who solve manual handling problems for people with disabilities and their care givers in tasks such as getting out of bed, having a shower and getting into their wheelchair for the day.

Health professionals are considered experts in this the skill set needed to keep care workers injury free in these tasks however they are rarely taught how to do it at university level. Many struggle with their knowlege in three main areas.

1. What keeps care workers and clients free from injury

2. How to prescribe, use and justify equipment in a time efficient fashion

3. How to manage the needs of all people in the manual handling process

As a result they find themselves giving incorrect advice or continuously asking for supervision with difficult cases they don’t feel confident about. They can also waste time trialling equipment that is unlikely to work and or discount solutions that are likely to be successful. Finally, they can struggle managing the needs of everyone in the manual handling leading to stress and burn out.

This webinar will explain the common mistakes health professionals make and how to avoid them in:

The process of assessing and document manual handling problems

Prescribing, using and justifying equipment

Supporting the people in the process so manual handling enhances as opposed to fractures relationships.

This webinar will start you on the road to gaining confidence in the solutions you offer, being efficient in the way you solve them and doing so with less stress.

This webinar will fun for 45 minutes with time for questions at the end

Talking to our Aged Care Provider clients about the new Accreditation Standards

We have been out and about visiting Aged Care Providers to talk about how the new Single Aged Care Standards and the impact Unannounced Audits may have on their organisation. I think its fair to say that since Oakden, many providers of aged care services have made time to review their systems and take a long hard look at where they are and where they would like to go. What people are saying to us is that they need systems that a quicker and produce timely useful information with far less chasing, rework and duplication. We hear you and respect your view! We are continuing to talk to Aged Care Providers about what their pain points are and including their thoughts and ideas into everything we write and every software upgrade we make. If your organisation would like to participate, please contact us. or

We would love to hear from you
