Introduction to 24-hour postural care for healthcare professionals

About this event


This half day CPD certified course comprises of:

  • Pre-recorded training sessions
  • Independent learning worksheet
  • Live on-line discussion with trainers Rachel Wright and Sarah Clayton


24-hour postural care is essential for people with complex needs to prevent the development of life-limiting and complex body shape changes. This online, pre-recorded half-day course introduces healthcare and social care practitioners to the key principles and current research around the delivery of postural care for people with complex needs.


Anyone working with people who have limited movement whether in health, education or social care.


Whether you are interested in communication, sensory engagement, education, orthopaedics or simply enabling people with complex needs to have fun, postural care is fundamental to making everything else possible. It enables people to be comfortable, learn and explore their world. This course is primarily made up of pre-recorded videos and short live session which can be accessed in a lunch break. It is therefore a great, short, accessible introduction to postural care.


One week before the live event you will be sent a link to a password protected webpage with all the information you need to complete the course. The live discussion will take place on Zoom and last only 30 minutes. The course covers:

  • What is 24-hour postural care?
  • How do we evidence outcomes?
  • Personalised care and co-production
  • Current evidence and gaps in the research


“Very useful for therapists to hear feedback from a parents perspective and reflect on this.”

“Even the recorded video were engaging and interactive.”

“I most liked the combination of training about technical aspects of postural care combined with training on co-production… The best technical system is the one that’s used.
