This Half-Day training course teaches a systematic, safe approach to delivering nursing care that will help to reduce the risk of physical assaults on staff by patients
Ideally, delegates should have attended CRT prior to this course.
The training is for all NHS Staff at risk of being assaulted. Delegates are taught a systematic, safe approach to delivering care that will help to reduce opportunity for assaults to happen (grips, grabs, pinching, scratching, hair pulling, hitting, kicking). Delegates also learn how to protect and move away if they are grabbed hold of, or attacked (Breakaway skills).
The practical skills are effective, safe to practice, able to be mastered quickly by most people and (due to their simplicity) unlikely to be forgotten in a crisis. None of the skills taught on the course involve learners raising aggression against another person or deliberately causing pain or injury.
