Resident to Staff Aggression Grant Training Opportunity

Could your team benefit from learning techniques to prevent, de-escalate and respond to resident to staff aggression? If so, this training is a great opportunity for you and your team.

Resident to staff aggression occurs, but it shouldn’t be thought of as just part of a caregivers’ job. Tools for prevention and response to resident aggression are critical for promoting worker safety and satisfaction as well as the resident experience. This interactive, application-based training will explore some of the reasons for resident aggression, provide strategies for violence prevention, de-escalation and during incident response as well as post incident response strategies that promote the prevention of future incidents. The role of policy, consistent and effective communication and a workplace violence prevention culture will be explored. Interactive learning experiences and discussions will help trainees practice and apply learning.

This OSHA grant supported training is available at NO COST and there is no limit on the number from an organization that can attend.  However, space in each session is limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Who should attend?

Training is available to ALL long-term care employees. Leadership and those working in non-direct care positions will benefit from the training too. Teams of at least four are encouraged for in-person and live, virtual options. All trainees will receive a certificate of completion. Those licensed in Kansas may be eligible for continuing education credits.
