Virtual patient hoist and hydrotherapy pool training could prove beneficial for OTs
Healthcare equipment and design specialist Innova Care Concepts has launched a free online training service called InnovaLive which will cover how to incorporate patient hoists and hydrotherapy pools into healthcare environments.
The Yorkshire-based company provides consultation, design, equipment, installation, maintenance and project management services for new-build and refurbishment projects across the care sector.
Primarily aimed at architects and contractors but also applicable to occupational therapists, the first virtual CPD sessions will take place throughout May and will ensure professionals still receive necessary training despite many events, conferences and training opportunities being cancelled.
The online training sessions will be delivered by Bob Oliver, Innova’s hoist and hydrotherapy pool specialist.
Commenting on the InnovaLive launch, he said: “It doesn’t matter how many projects you’ve worked on, there’s always more to learn. Every user group and setting has its own specific requirements.
“Sharing these experiences and best practices across the industry helps everyone to create better care environments. That’s why we started offering CPD in the first place. Now, finding ways to future-proof care facilities and improve quality of life for caregivers and patients feels more important than ever.
Innova Care Concepts has delivered traditional face-to-face training across the UK since 2013, however, the new course will be the company’s first virtual training offering.
“Launching InnovaLive lets us take all the practical, interactive aspects of our CPD sessions – like case studies, video, Q&A, component samples – and bring them online,” added Bob.
“We can share information with more people in the industry and make continued professional development accessible wherever they are.”
The first series of ‘Hoists and Hydrotherapy Pools’ CPD sessions will take place at 2pm on the 12th, 19th and 27th May 2020.
Each session is completely free to attend via Zoom, with those interested in taking part invited to book onto a session here
In addition, all attendees will be sent a certificate of attendance and a complimentary gift pack, including a free copy of Innova’s 25-page ‘Specifier’s Guide to Healthcare Environments.’
