Crises are never scheduled, convenient or easy. But they do happen, and you will face them. Imagine if you could come to work knowing that you and your co-workers would be able to confidently manage the most unpredictable and dangerous patient behaviors. In one career-changing day, you can learn the latest, safest, and best practices for the psychiatric emergencies that can take place in your non-psychiatric work setting.
Brian Fonnesbeck, an expert Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nurse, understands well the types of challenges that healthcare professionals encounter in the emergency department, the med/surg floor, long-term care… in practically all settings/departments, there are opportunities for patient and family interactions to suddenly go frighteningly wrong.
You've heard the horrific stories… and perhaps have a few of your own!
Brian will provide you with actual solutions to all these challenges! Crisis prevention skills, medication updates, how to protect your own safety, effective verbal interventions and the emerging new trends to get ready for.
Full of practical tools and tips, this recording will teach you how to make crisis situations more manageable, overcome your worries and improve your readiness to handle psychiatric emergencies related to violence, alcohol/substance abuse, suicide risk, dementia, agitation… and more!
You already know that these high-risk situations open up the possibility of legal risk… the growing risks are taking place due to short staffing, inadequate training, outdated policies, and sometimes just honest mistakes made during extremely stressful and challenging moments.
Confidently walk away with new insights to be able to protect your own safety, your license, your liability risk… and ultimately explore strategies that will allow you to more effectively provide the very best care to patients experiencing a psychiatric emergency.
