AAMHP is a multidisciplinary group of predominantly healthcare and OHS professions aimed at sharing ideas and promoting continuous improvement in the systems, training, equipment and assistive devices available to safely move and handle people in the health and community services environments, whilst also providing best outcomes for client in their care of Acute, Aged, Disabilities and Community Services. The theme of the 2018 health conference Melbourne continues to build on these areas and incorporates three pillars: Predictions, People and Preventions.
This conference provides not only networking amongst like-minded persons but also an opportunity to see, touch and test all the latest in technology and innovative equipment from our sponsors. We have a line up of International and National speakers on subjects of great interest to all of us, from Robotics in nursing to singled handed care, legislative compliance on slings, equipment selection compatibilities, and managing risk through building design and ergonomics. www.aamhp.org.au follow the link to the conference registration
21ST – 23RD OF MAY 2018
The Australian Association of Manual Handling of people is a voluntary group of likeminded people all striving for a common goal. Injury prevention for both workers and clients in the workplace. Predominantly we look at techniques and strategies to resolve the constant issue of Muscular Skeletal Disorders within the industries providing care to others, but ultimately over the years we are convinced that we are achieving much more than that. Wellbeing and resilience are words that will resonate throughout the 2018 conference, with many papers demonstrating the byproduct of our work, that being better care results for our clients.
Most of us all feel overwhelmed at times with the ever-changing dynamics of our industries and as such seek to ensure networking events that have a specialty focus and an assurance that we are headed in the right direction. Even when having been in the industry for over 40 years I too value the insight of other colleagues and as seniors in the industry feel we have a duty to assist and mentor those upcoming persons following up the ranks and seeking to improve the quality and lifestyle of those around us.
The 8th Biannual conference in Melbourne will, with your help be bigger and better as every one of our conferences seems to escalate every time they are held.
