This course explores the six stages of managing aggression and challenging behaviour including physical and non-physical defence strategies suitable to the NHS. Includes advanced physical intervention skills.
PMVA & MVA Training Overview:
According to NICE (2015) the number of reported assaults against NHS staff is increasing each year with around 69% of these occurring in mental health or learning disability settings.
Following the principles of the current NICE guidelines (Violence and aggression: short-term management in mental health, health and community settings) our PMVA & PMVA training is based on a person centred approach to conflict and difficult behaviour using the Able 6-Stage Target Model of proactive and responsive service delivery, emphasising the use of physical intervention and restraint as a last resort.
Our PMVA & MVA training meets NHS Protect standards in conflict resolution and physical intervention.
