Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare Improving Patient Outcomes event image

Providing clinicians with helpful information in the fields of tissue viability, occupational therapy and moving & handling, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has announced the launch of its Improving Patient Outcomes Together Study Days.

The Study Days bring together the fields of tissue viability, occupational therapy and moving & handling with speakers from all disciplines discussing practical solutions of interprofessional interest to improve patient outcomes.

According to Drive DeVilbiss, there are many courses available for each individual speciality, but few focus on the connections and overlaps between the disciplines of tissue viability, occupational therapy and moving & handling.

Utilising feedback from clinicians, Drive DeVilbiss has joined up these disciplines by providing a program of events aimed at working together to improve patient outcomes.

Fully CPD accredited and led by a mix of independent experts in their field, the day will deliver a program of topical sessions, touching on all specialities and providing valuable training and education on current and future issues.

Sarah Westcott, RN, RSCN, Clinical Lead at Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, commented: “These study days show a huge commitment by Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare to both its clinical services and to its customers.

“Delivering CPD events that have a genuine clinical focus, and therefore value, to clinicians from a variety of backgrounds and experiences means that we are able to show that we are truly focussed on adding value as an organisation. Personally, as one of the DDH clinical team it is very exciting to be a part of the mission to support customers in such a dynamic way.”
