Violence in the heath-care workplace is a major disruption to providing quality nursing care and has a negative impact on the therapeutic setting. This course can make a difference for all affected by violence and aggression in the workplace. The purpose of this course is to help nurses better understand the scope and nature of violence in the heath-care setting. Participants will learn how to recognize the key elements of violence and aggressive behavior. Through simulation, nurses will apply individual strategies and develop skills for preventing and responding to violent and aggressive behavior in the workplace.
Please dress in hospital scrubs or clinical work attire as participants will work hands-on with a human patient simulator.
