What is violence and aggression training important?
Ideally, no-one should face aggression or violence in the workplace, but in reality, many people do. For some, it will be an occasional hazard they face, while for others it can be a more or less daily occurrence. Regardless of the frequency with which the issues arise, we all have to take the necessary safeguards to minimise
- the likelihood of problems arising;
- the risks involved when they do arise; and
- the potentially very negative impact on us.
There are no guarantees that aggression and violence will not occur, but there are steps we can take to reduce the chances. Having a sense of control can also help to make dealing with the risks a less stressful experience than it might otherwise turn out to be. What is perhaps the most dangerous approach to take is to assume that ‘it will never happen to me’. We owe it to ourselves and to each other as colleagues to do whatever we reasonably can to keep the risks to a minimum and to be as prepared as we reasonably can for all the possible eventualities.
What is the Skills for Health’ UK ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?
There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, LearnPac Systems works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3, Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.
This online handling violence & aggression training course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
