DE-ESCALATION FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS
Who will benefit from this training?
Healthcare workers are required to have extensive training when it comes to the medical care of their patients. However, as the primary caregivers, they have to take care of much more than just the medical needs of their patients. They are always faced with intense emotions in high-stress environments, which makes it harder to focus on their actual job. This is where Resolution Education’s de-escalation training can benefit them.
De-Escalation Training with Resolution Education
De-escalation training teaches the art of conflict resolution through communication techniques and emotional intelligence skills. The training programs offered by Resolution Education focus on various verbal and gestural communication exercises such as using your voice to diffuse the situation and stop the aggression from escalating. De-escalation techniques used by Resolution Education are applied effectively when the problem first arises and can keep things from getting out of control and reduce the need for damage control.
The Problems Faced By Healthcare Workers
Other than just providing primary healthcare, the hospital staff is in charge of making sure patients and the people accompanying them are safe and abide by the rules of the facility. They are often short of staff, leading them to be over-worked and over-exhausted. In these situations, unpredictable conflicts with patients may arise out of nowhere and, if not handled properly, will likely escalate into something much more.
Benefits Of De-Escalation Training For Healthcare Workers
Healthcare workers have to deal with uncooperative patients and unreasonable and emotionally distressed family members daily. They have to witness tragic events that often desensitise them to the trauma around them, making it difficult for them to practice empathy with everyone at all times. Resolution Education’s programs in de-escalation will teach them empathetic listening and awareness of body language and will benefit not only them but also their patients and the healthcare facility.
Healthcare workers trained in the methods of de-escalation will be more likely to:
– Detect problems early on and intervene productively while maintaining the safety of their patients and staff.
– Prevent violent behaviour more effectively while minimising the need for using restraints.
– In situations where patients must be physically restrained, staff will be trained to do it through positive reinforcement and while maintaining respect for the patient.
