PMVA Training for NHS Staff helps to reduce the risks of violence and aggression in primary and secondary health services by developing NHS staff knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively employ de-escalation skills, breakaway and disengagement tactics or control and restraint interventions appropriately within the context of their service users, residents, patients and clients. Our PMVA Training for NHS Staff meets NHS Protect standards in conflict resolution and physical intervention.
Our PMVA Training for NHS Staff develop three levels of prevention and management of violence and aggression:
- Proactive strategies to prevent incidents of aggression or violence
- Retro-active strategies to defuse and de-escalate an emerging situation
- Reactive Strategies to minimise injury risk and regain control of a situation.
Your team will learn to safely apply appropriate non-restrictive or (where necessary) restrictive physical interventions as alternatives to the primary non-escalation and secondary de-escalation strategies which we will help you to put in place.
Learning Outcomes in PMVA Training for NHS Staff:
On completion of this PMVA training, your staff team will be able to:
- Apply the legal principles of Reasonable Force to high-risk scenarios
- Apply the principles regarding Duty of Care to scenarios of high-risk
- Identify situations which may give rise to the risk of sudden death during restraint or of serious injury during an incident
- Understand that physical restrictive interventions are reactive strategies which are used in conjunction with proactive, preventative strategies
- Use tactics which encourage movement by prompting
- Use tactics which enable them to safely escort a compliant but unpredictable person from one place to another
- Employ control tactics for rapidly unfolding situations where they need to keep themselves and a vulnerable but physically-able subject subject safe from harm
- Employ control tactics in higher-risk situations where there is a risk that they might lose control and thereby allow harm to come to themselves, a colleague or the vulnerable (but physically capable) subject they are looking after
- record an incident clearly in a way that allows another person to understand their actions in the circumstances which faced them
- Communicate with their subject and with each other in a way which promotes the most positive outcomes in difficult and rapidly-unfolding circumstances
