Description

Improve Client Satisfaction by Standardizing Force and Pressure

As a healthcare or wellness provider, you know that therapeutic interventions include the use human touch and with that touch, the application of gentle to heavy force, which the patient perceives as pressure. But how do you know when you're applying too much force and pressure unless the patient complains? How do you know when you're applying too little to be effective?

Now through newly developed cutting-edge technology and research, health and wellness providers can assess their own applied force in measurable units. After self-assessment, providers will practice and develop muscle memory to apply light, gentle, medium, heavy and intense pressure, and a new way to document the care in health records.

The new skill will lead to uniformity in your applied force and standardization across healthcare and wellness providers, leading to higher patient/client satisfaction. 

Online Certification is available upon completion of this course. if desired.
