This course provides a comprehensive guide to how to manage violence and aggression in the healthcare workplace. It is aimed at all healthcare workers and health service managers.

There are three modules in this course:

  • Violence in the healthcare workplace: Post violent incident response
  • This module is related to the Australian National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards as part of Standard Five: Comprehensive Care. It is specifically relevant to Action 5.33 and 5.34: Predicting, preventing, and managing aggression and violence.
