Abstract

This article discusses an innovation which has been designed to promote person-centred approaches within moving and handling practice. The approach has been developed to help learners reduce patient anxiety and promote involvement. It draws on expertise and practical techniques which have been developed elsewhere, particularly in relation to working with patients diagnosed with dementia. This includes the use of a simulation toolkit which enables learners to participate in scenarios which reflect sensory and physical factors. This is supported by debriefing. This article will be of interest to all those who undertake moving and handling practice as well as educators with a role in developing approaches in the field.
