Understanding Violence and Aggression in Healthcare Environments

Understanding Violence and Aggression in Healthcare Environments

Helping to understand key aspects about Violence and Aggression in healthcare environments

Workplace violence is a phenomenon affecting every country, every workplace and every professional group to such an extent it could be characterised as an epidemic.

According to international statistical data, nearly 4% of the total employee population has reported that they have experienced physical violence from people outside their workplace.

In healthcare environments in particular, all employees are faced with the risk of becoming a victim of violence, as statistically, violence affects one in two healthcare professionals worldwide.  Within these statistics, it is estimated that nurses are three times more likely to be exposed to violence than any other professional group.

In this course, we will look at the topics particularly relevant to those who work in healthcare environments and in particular, consider healthcare data that covers specific contexts and environments regarding patients and their care:

  • Anger
  • Violence
  • Risk Assessment
  • Safety and Security
  • Using Control and Restraint
  • Nature and Types of Physical Intervention
  • Rapid Tranquilisation
  • Recording and Reporting
  • Legal preface
