The text is supported by photographs that show what should be done at each stage of the manoeuvre, and the advice is backed up by theory.

Sometimes several manoeuvring options are outlined for particular scenarios, depending on which aids are available. The text also includes case studies, such as managing leg ulcer dressings and assessing a bariatric patient.

The book would be useful for any healthcare professionals working in an environment where patients are moved, such as residential care homes or hospital wards.
