"This book is a comprehensive guidebook of therapeutic de-escalation techniques for nurses and other healthcare professionals to improve safety in healthcare facilities. Readers will explore the concepts of aggression (including risk factors), de-escalation, and therapeutic communication. They will also learn how to perform mental status assessments, manage and even prevent aggressive behavior, and practice conflict resolution, and--when faced with individuals with depressive disorders, suicidal ideation, and/or self-injurious behavior (SIB)--engage in crisis intervention. Specific therapeutic interventions for difficult behavioral issues associated with schizophrenia, dementia, bipolar disorder, cognitive impairment, anxiety and panic disorders are also covered, as are stress-management techniques to help patients cope, tips for creating a caring and healing environment to stop violence before it starts, and a framework for building a healthcare violence prevention program. Nursing students and healthcare professionals of all educational levels will find this book to be immensely valuable. De-escalation is one of the most valuable skills a healthcare worker can possess. Indeed, all healthcare workers need this vital skill to help ensure their safety in the healthcare environment. It's not uncommon for healthcare professionals to encounter an agitated or aggressive person. How that healthcare worker responds will dictate whether the situation is defused or escalated--perhaps even resulting in physical violence. The goal of this book is to ensure the result is the former--to prevent healthcare violence, and to foster a safe healthcare workplace that benefits all and promotes peace and safety for everyone"--

Workplace violence has become a priority safety concern in health care settings today. Health care providers are exposed to workplace violence more than any other profession. Statistically, 50% of all health care providers have experienced verbal aggression and 25% have been physically assaulted by an aggressive patient. Exposure to patient aggression is associated with major consequences to hospitals and patients through increased injury, loss of productivity, psychological distress, medical costs, reduced job satisfaction, and higher turnover rates.Several studies have been conducted to determine the most effective interventions for managing patient aggression within the hospital setting. Evidence strongly supports de-escalation as the first-line intervention to reduce patient aggression directed toward health care providers. While de-escalation techniques have been shown to be effective in managing violent incidents, most studies on patient aggression have only evaluated its impact in psychiatric and emergency care settings. Due to challenges associated with the costs of training and time constraints, this DNP project focused on educating registered nurses (RNs) about de-escalation techniques in order to safely manage patient aggression on the renal unit at a large metropolitan hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio between September 5, 2019 and December 2, 2019.The findings of this DNP project supported the empirical evidence showing that an educational intervention on a medical-surgical unit can result in increased competence in nurses applying de-escalation strategies in clinical practice, leading to reduced aggressive events and better health outcomes. Evidence suggests that dissemination of this project’s results and a trial of the educational intervention on other medical-surgical units would be beneficial. Further, sustainability can be promoted through providing annual de-escalation education to staff. Plans for future dissemination include publication and presentation at national conferences.

Inpatient mental health care is an essential part of community-based mental health care in the UK. Patients admitted to acute mental health wards are often experiencing high levels of distress and acute mental illness and need to be assessed, managed, and treated by a wide team of mental health care professionals. Inpatient care is often a traumatic experience for patients and their relatives which can define their relationship with mental health care services. Reforming inpatient psychiatry is a priority for both patients and staff, yet there are few reference texts on this psychiatric specialty. The Oxford Textbook of Inpatient Psychiatry bridges this gap by offering a comprehensive and pragmatic guide to the UK's inpatient mental health care system today. Written and edited by a multidisciplinary team, this innovative resource discusses the real-life experiences and challenges of a wide range of professionals working on acute mental health wards. Organized into 8 sections this resource covers nursing, team leadership, multidisciplinary work, psychology, and medical aspects. Individual chapters address key topics such as the management of children and adolescents, and contain information on up-to-date research and best practice. Focusing on the dignity and autonomy of patients, this unique resource offers a model for clinical and organizational practice both at a national and international level.
