Ergomotricity, patients handling

Only in French version

«Back ache» is one of the first causes of sick leave in caregivers, nurses and nursing auxiliaries in particular ; in fact, patients handling can turn out laborious and hard if they don’t use adapted techniques.  
Moreover a patient who feels safe and does not suffer of handling thanks to good grips is very often willing to participate.
This booklet explains and reminds the main positions through concrete situations taken from nurse’s experience.
