Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A gap in the medical undergraduate curriculum on safe moving and handling of patients was identified, and a project to enhance moving and handling education for undergraduates in various healthcare disciplines was undertaken. A team of nurses, doctors, physiotherapists and e-learning professionals developed a cross-discipline e-learning resource, piloted with medical and nursing students at Queen’s University Belfast. One outcome of the project was the development of a deeper recognition of the common curriculum across healthcare disciplines.
