Caring for patients in a healthcare environment can require nurses, aides, orderlies and other caregivers to lift as much as four thousand pounds during a typical shift. No wonder they're twice as likely to suffer musculoskeletal injuries on the job as employees in other industries. But these injuries don't have to occur.

MARCOM's new "Patient Handling Safety" training courses discuss the hazards that can be associated with patient handling tasks, and what healthcare workers can do to prevent accidents and injuries from occurring while they perform them.

All of the products... the new "Micro-Learning" and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses... discuss topics that are integral to employees' understanding of these issues.

Topics covered in these products include:

  • Patient handling and caregiver injuries.
  • Algorithms, patient assessment and body mechanics.
  • Repostioning a patient in bed.
  • Performing patient transfer tasks safely.
  • Mechanical lift devices.
  • and more.

All "Patient Handling Safety" products are available in English (Spanish will be available later in 2020).

The "Patient Handling Safety" MicroLearning curriculum includes the following 3-5 minute courses:

  • "Patient Handling and Caregiver Injuries"
  • "Algorithms, Patient Assessment and Body Mechanics"
  • "Repositioning A Patient In Bed"
  • "Lateral Transfer From Bed to Stretcher"
  • "Stand and Pivot From Bed to Chair"
  • "Mechanical Lift Devices"

Adaptive Learning

Model Number: gss_372_adl_en
Runtime: 10 - 30 minutes
Adaptive Learning

“Adaptive Learning” takes advantage of an employee’s existing knowledge to create training courses that are customized for that employee, and don’t “reteach” them things that they already know. In other words, the Adaptive Learning process determines what an employee already knows about a topic, then structures courses that contain only the information that the employee needs to complete their knowledge of the topic.

These individually customized courses eliminate the largest employee complaint about safety training (“I already know most of this stuff, so why do I have to go through this training again?!”), while potentially recapturing thousands of hours of lost productivity.

MARCOM’s Adaptive Learning courses test employees before they take the course. Then based on the questions that they answer correctly, the course itself determines if the employee knows enough about the information in each chapter in the course to “test out” of that chapter… and if they do, automatically reconfigures the course to skip those chapters.

Reconfiguring the courses in this way typically saves about 50% of an employee’s time in taking a course. Over a year’s time this can recapture a significant amount of lost productivity time for a company of any size, and result in hundreds of thousands of dollars of annual savings.
