Multidisciplinary approaches to moving and handling for formal and informal carers in community palliative care



Multidisciplinary approaches to moving and handling for formal and informal carers in community palliative care



International Journal of Palliative Nursing 21(1): 17-23



Health professionals such as nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists provide a wealth of support in the community to patients and their carers receiving palliative care. Moving and handling is one such support that needs careful consideration and assessment including risk, by appropriately qualified professionals. A combination of skills are required as well as knowledge of up to date equipment to assist the health professional in deciding how to formulate safe moving and handling interventions in a timely way. Patients with palliative care needs and their carers should be given the appropriate care and support necessary using a holistic, flexible and patient-centred approach to service delivery.
