Preventing & Managing Workplace Violence
For Long Term Care Managers
Workplace Supervisors and staff members usually look to management as the on the job experts for all problems. But, the increasingly prevalent problem of workplace violence is one for which few managers have been trained. Still, statistics show that violence is very much a fact of life in the modern-day long term care environment. Well-informed leadership could save lives.
Preventing and Managing Workplace Violence has been created by nationally recognized safety experts, specifically for long term care managers, to demonstrate and explain proven methods of effectively dealing with all levels of conflict. The video, used in conjunction with the enclosed facilitator guide, creates a stimulating one-hour training session using situations and settings typical of those that long term care managers face every day.
Role-playing vignettes give viewers slice-of-life examples of how suggested techniques work in action. The enclosed facilitator guide helps session leaders conduct a thorough program, which includes a review of OSHA standards, and management investigation and reporting responsibilities.
Leadership is essential to the smooth and efficient daily operation of all long term care facilities. However, the management role is perhaps never more important than in times of crisis. This program can make the life-saving difference in how violence in the workplace is resolved.
