Mangar launches specialist CPD training for professionals
Mangar International will launch new specialist CPD modules for occupational therapists and care workers at the 2015 OT Show. The modules have been developed under the expert guidance of Rachel Russell and Kate Sheehan from the OT Service and will highlight important criteria when prescribing equipment, pertinent to the 2014 Care Act and occupational performance.
Mangar International is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of inflatable moving and handling and bathing equipment. The company has worked with Local Authorities and supported occupational therapists with joint assessments, product training and literature for more than 30 years. The new CPD accredited modules have been created to give OTs the skills and knowledge required when prescribing bathing equipment and understanding the role of floor recovery equipment after a fall.
Both modules take 2 hours to complete and are free to occupational therapists and care home healthcare professionals. The Mangar International team delivering the CPD modules has been personally trained by Rachel Russell and will be available to provide training sessions across the UK.
Andrew Barker, Managing Director said, “Mangar International places great emphasise on OT support, ensuring they have the information needed to support clients requiring our products. Working with Rachel and Kate from the OT Service means we can now deliver accredited training, designed by professionals for professionals.”
The Mangar International Team will be at the OT Show, Stand F110 to talk about the training. Rachel Russell will be leading a seminar on Bathing – Occupation, Choice or Wellbeing – and will also be on the stand to give expert advice and guidance on 25th November.
