Could your team benefit from learning techniques to prevent, de-escalate and respond to resident to staff aggression? If so, keep reading! Development is underway for the Long-Term Care Resident to Staff Aggression: Prevention and Response training and we are looking for organizations ready to become Training Partners. It is not scary, it won’t require a lot of your time and energy but will help your organization maximize the no cost training opportunities presented by the OSHA Susan Harwood Grant. 

Partner organizations will receive one on one support to set and achieve a goal to have a meaningful percentage of the team trained during the grant period. Partners will have the opportunity to provide input as training dates and times are determined, the potential for a live, virtual training session for just your team, and technical support from the project team as you work to implement learning. Organizations meeting the goal will also receive a certificate and a press release to share with your local community. Individual trainees will also earn a certificate of completion and nurses, administrators and operators will earn no cost CE credits.

Partner spaces are limited. Contact Stephanie Gfeller today!
