Description

High-Risk Patient Situations ETOH & Substance Abuse Managing the Family Dynamics Anger & Aggression Manipulative Behavior Violent Patients Dementia-Related Behaviors Suicidal Ideation In today’s healthcare environment, professionals are challenged to do more with less. Reduced staffing and increased (at times the seemingly unrealistic) demands from patients, family members and other visitors can all contribute to burnout. Adding to the complicating factors, you are continually expected to achieve optimal patient outcomes, ensure safety and quality goals, and strive for even higher levels on satisfaction scores. In this interactive seminar, expert clinician, Latasha Ellis, MSW, LCSW, will provide you with practical tips and tools that you can use immediately when faced with challenging patient and family behaviors. This program includes practical strategies to help you cope with difficult situations like aggression, dementia and attention seeking behaviors while maintaining patient and staff safety. The day will be filled with opportunities to apply many of these strategies through real patient situations, case studies and interactive discussions. Don’t miss this chance to learn techniques you can implement successfully with your most difficult patients.
