“one in six members of staff, 15%, report that they have experienced physical violence from patients, relatives or members of the public.” NHS Staff Survey, NHS England  5th March 2018

This conference will focus on ensuring adherence to the National NICE Quality Standard on Violence and Aggression. The quality standard focuses on short-term management of violent and physically threatening behaviour among adults, children and young people with a mental health problem. It applies to settings where mental health, health and social care services are provided. This includes community settings and care received at home.

The conference will update delegates on national standards with regard to:

-Anticipating violence and aggression

-De-escalation

-Prevention interventions

-Using restrictive interventions

100% of delegates at our last conference on Violence and Aggression would recommend the conference to a colleague.
