‐ Sep 21, 2023 6:00pm

Nurses are front-line workers in the healthcare industry and encounter over 20,000 assaults per year. This session aims to reduce victimization (nurse assaults) by arming the nursing profession with understanding and tactics to prevent attacks from happening as well as personal safety. We will zero in on body language behaviors that are displayed by those that intend to assault. Knowing these pre-assaultive behaviors can play a vital role in your daily work life.
