The prevention and management of violence and aggression (PMVA) is an important aspect of safe care practice, especially in formal health care settings.
Our aim is to provide staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence in managing potential conflict using a range of techniques.
· De-escalation skills
· Verbal and non-verbal communication
· Tactical manoeuvres to disengage from an aggressor
· The safe application of physical intervention or restraint manoeuvres, where appropriate.
We assist our clients on the knowhow of how to take control of conflict scenarios in a safe, legal and consistent manner. Our training approach puts the well-being of service users and staff at the heart of all interventions.
Our PMVA course content includes guidance from NICE; the Department of Health and Care Quality Commission and it is underpinned by key principles in both common and statutory law.
Our PMVA training is accredited by General Services Association (GSA).
We teach GSA-issued and approved physical intervention techniques which have been risk assessed and rigorously tested for their effectiveness and safety.
