Violence in healthcare - Managing acute severe behavioural disturbances (2/3)

CPD hours:
2

The second module in this three part series, covers how to manage severe violence or aggressive behaviours in the healthcare workplace, providing participants with tools that may be utilised to minimise the risk of harm associated with severe behavioural disturbance.


There are three modules in this course:

  1. Violence in the healthcare workplace: Predicting, preventing, and managing violence
  2. Violence in the healthcare workplace: Managing acute severe behavioural disturbances
  3. Violence in the healthcare workplace: Post violent incident response


This course is linked to the Australian National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards, Standard Five: Comprehensive Care. It is specifically relevant to Action 5.35 and 5.36: Minimising restrictive practices: restraint and seclusion.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
