Moving & Handling Theory Training

Mulberry House were the first healthcare training organisation to produce a Moving and Handling Theory Training DVD for health and social care providers in the UK. 

Delivering handling theory training before delivering practical handling training ‘sets the scene’ and helps those being trained understand the ‘why’ of safe handling before the ‘how’.

This dramatically improves the quality of safe handling in practice, which, therefore, promotes the best interests of those you provide a service to.

This is mandatory training for induction (not withstanding the fact it's a legal requirement). 

The DVD’s are ideal for induction, refresher, management and vocational training, for example the Care Certificate.
