Archived Webinar: With The Right Sling, You Can Do Anything!

Presented live June 12, 2019 2 pm – 3 pm Eastern

Overview

Slings are an essential component of any successful SPHM program and reusable slings are better for the environment. Reusable slings provide more options and significantly enhance the SPHM program by providing multiple applications for improving patient outcomes.

Most SPHM champions are unaware of the variety, assessment, application and outcomes that can be expected with the different sling types.

To remain viable, reusable slings need to be closely monitored – examples of damaged slings will be reviewed.

Objectives – After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify different types of slings, the appropriate patient for that sling
  • Review positive outcomes with different types of slings
  • Examine sling damage and consequences of utilizing damaged slings
