Our Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions (NMAHP) directorate, with other internal and external stakeholders, have launched a new e-learning resource - ‘Your Posture Matters: An introduction to postural care for people with movement difficulties and those who support them’.

This is a valuable resource for anyone who:

  • has difficulty lying, sitting, standing, or walking
  • knows, cares for, or works with people of any age who need assistance with mobility or movement

There is a suite of 6 modules, each taking around 30 minutes to complete, and includes:

  • interactive learning
  • videos
  • references
  • resources
  • quizzes

Once completed, you will have an understanding of postural care, how changes in body shape can be prevented and gained confidence to deliver optimal care. 

The e-learning resource is available on TURAS website, or by scanning the QR Code.

Note: You will need a Turas account to view and access the module. If you don’t have an account, you can register here.
