Home care worker musculoskeletal injury prevention project: Research and Workplace Innovation Program

Research and Workplace Innovation Program (RWIP) project by Kim Dyck, Regional Health Authority of Central Manitoba

Using the existing Safe Client Handling and Injury Prevention Program (SCHIPP), this project expanded safety training to over 400 home care workers in RHA Central. The availability of an on-site musculoskeletal injury (MSI) educator for the duration of this project provided front-line staff with immediate assistance when faced with patient mobility concerns.
