Lecture Overview

No matter the situation, violence against healthcare workers is never ok. Unfortunately, front-line workers (paramedics, first-responders, emergency department, etc) will still often meet with aggression and violence in the line of duty. In this presentation, paramedic lecturer Jeff Kenneally explores patient aggression and sedation to help you identify the right course of action to ensure your safety as well as the best possible outcome for your patient. A great review of de-escalation techniques and both restraint and sedation methods.
