Benefits of De-escalation & OVA Training with Resolution Education
Resolution Education’s OVA (Occupational Violence and Aggression) and Code Black training for healthcare workers has helped reduce violent outbursts from patients and lowered the number of altercations staff have to face on a daily basis.
We train staff at all levels, from volunteers and junior staff members to leaders and CEOs. Resolution Education makes an effort to understand the day-to-day processes of your organisation and designs training that will best protect your employees. This includes role-playing scenarios that directly reflect situations that could occur in your organisation. Team members learn how to work together, with specific safety techniques for their role in the organisation and their role in de-escalating aggressive situations.
To ensure effective learning of our proven techniques, we use our signature A.D.P. Framework (Awareness, De-escalation, Protection), which builds levels of skills from the basics of conflict resolution to what to do during and after a violent altercation. With the knowledge of correct policies, procedures, and legalities, your employees will have the correct techniques to make the workplace as safe as possible. This increases peace of mind and gives staff a better ability to focus on their job – providing exceptional aged care.
Comprehensive De-escalation & OVA Training for the Aged Care Industry
De-escalation & OVA Training in Aged Care
Aged Care workers can face many difficult scenarios with clients, family members of clients, or other workers, particularly when dealing with elderly people who have mental or physical conditions which make them prone to anxiety and/or hostility. Assisting the elderly can both be a highly demanding and highly rewarding role in society. Whether staff work in an aged care facility, hospital, or visit clients at home, there are many cases that can arise where aggression occurs and needs to be dealt with appropriately. It’s extremely important that staff are able to handle such situations and keep themselves, their coworkers, their clients and the public safe.
At Resolution Education, we believe that everyone should feel safe in their occupation, with the ability to de-escalate or deal with altercations with minimum complications. For twenty years we have successfully trained staff across industries to help give them the confidence and ability to reduce risk and increase safety for themselves and others. Altercations can be physical or verbal, and be face-to-face, over the phone or by email. No matter which kind of aggression an employee is dealing with, they should have the skills to get through the situation safely and calmly.
