Welcome Nursing Home Trainers!

Nursing Home Ergonomics Trainers: This blog is for you.

We created this blog to:

  • provide a central location to store training project materials and resources
  • create a mechanism for trainers to communicate with each other about their success stories and challenges in implementing ergonomics training in nursing homes

We will feature (1) key resource material for training and injury prevention programs, (2) questions and news from our participating facilities, and (3) important news related to the safer lifting and moving of nursing home residents.

If you have any questions about the UMass Lowell Nursing Home Ergonomics Training Project, please call Project Director Marian Flum. Phone: 978-934-2534. Email:  Marian_Flum@uml.edu.

If you need any additional materials, please contact project administrator Susan D’Amore. Phone: 978-934-3127.   Email:  Susan_Damore@uml.edu.

For questions about this Web Blog please contact project webmaster, Jamie Tessler, at ergo@uml.edu.
