Occupational Therapist Shaun Masters to present ‘Getting legs into bed’ CPD seminars at OT Show

At the OT Show, Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist and Trusted Assessor, will be presenting unmissable 15-minute CPD-accredited seminars on the Theraposture stand focused on proven solutions for safer independent bed transfers. (J40, NEC, Birmingham, 27 and 28 November 2019).

Shaun has extensive experience within community-based enablement in the public sector. He will be sharing his experience and knowledge at the NEC so OTs can gain invaluable advice and insight into proven assistive beds and cots for Adults and Paediatrics. Shaun’s seminars at the exhibition will include highlights from Theraposture’s new workshop training programme which is available across the UK:

‘Getting legs into bed’:
Enabling independent transfers for those unable to safely get into or out of bed.
