Hospital Violence Reduction and Management
Team Dynamis has been operating internationally since 2008 when our team were first asked to bring best-practice approaches from the United Kingdom to the U.A.E. Since then our team has visited both Abu Dhabi and Dubai to teach extended programmes, along with consultancy and advisory visits to Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait in addition to meeting professionals from Saudi Arabia and all around the Middle East, North Africa and Gulf Region to discuss how hospital administrators can implement programmes which reduce violence in their facilities.
We have a full suite of measures which address the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of violence management:
Our Experience in teaching in multi-national and multi-cultural environments is unparalleled in our sector, and our long-standing relationships with clients in the MENA and GCC region attest to this.
