The National Association for Healthcare Security (NAHS) is running a brunch briefing on November 15. The topic at Guy’s Hospital, London is
‘Dealing with Challenging Behaviour in Healthcare’.
As resources become tighter and the demands made upon healthcare security services ever increasing, the organisers aim to bring together up to 120 delegates.
Chair of the association and briefing organiser, Birmingham-based Peter Finch said: “We are all conscious of growing demands and in many cases reduced resources to ensure the safety and security of patients, staff and visitors to our healthcare facilities. By bringing together all the key players in managing challenging behaviour, we will be able to showcase best practice and share vital learning in what is an essential function of our organisations.
“The briefing will include sessions on the prevention and management of challenging behaviour, dealing with challenging dialysis patients, dementia awareness, and young people and mental health.
“We will also be focussing on Care Quality Commission Outcome 7 – Safeguarding Patients and the Court Assessment and Advice Service for mental health patients used in Somerset as an example of best practice.”
Speakers come from a clinical or non-clinical background. The conference is in particular aimed at healthcare security managers, child and adult safeguard leads, dementia leads and those interested in methods to deal with challenging behaviour.
With stunning views of London, from the 29th floor of Guy’s Tower, near the Shard on the south bank of the Thames, the briefing begins with brunch at 10am and ends at 2.30pm. For more information and to book your place, your contact is: [email protected]
