Event Type

Join us for an insightful gathering on Wednesday 26 July 2017, to explore the topic of violence and aggression in the Healthcare Workplace.

Occupational Violence and Aggression (OVA) is a growing hazard in the workplace, in particular the Healthcare and social service industry. OVA takes many forms and sometimes with fatal outcomes.
Key to the successful management is the empowerment of your workforce to recognise and take steps to prevent and reduce the severity of any incidents. One such way of managing OVA is by “Verbal Judo”(Tactical Communications) and our presenter Trevor Lawson is a Verbal Judo Instructor who runs training Australia wide.
