Have you felt intimated by a patient’s family? Are you unsure of how to properly screen a patient for abuse/violence when their family members are in the room? Have you ever suspected a patient’s partner/family member was abusive, but did not address it for fear of creating “problems”? Have you witnessed a patient being verbally abused by a family member?
Learn more about these issues, as well as risk assessment and resources for improved staff and patient safety. Discussion will address real life scenarios and any gaps in current model. RSVP here: Yes, I will attend
