WHYB "Worker Safety Wednesday" Webinar: SPHM Program Sustainability and Spread

Meeting Description:
The presentation will discuss strategies for building sustainable Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) programs from both theoretical and practical perspectives. We will draw on a rich tradition of program implementation from a variety of perspectives including agriculture, public health and social sciences. Information will be useful to participants as they begin new SPHM programs, revitalize programs that are struggling to succeed and lead programs into maturity.
  1. Differentiate program implementation from program sustainability.
  2. Apply principles from business and organizational change to program sustainability in health care.
  3. Implement measures to increase sustainability of safe patient handling and mobility at your facility.
This webinar will be recorded and a replay link will be available on the Workforce Safety webpage under Educational Archives.
