Product Description

This just in: new Joint Commission 'disruptive behavior' requirements.

The Joint Commission knows that healthcare institutions are not immune to violence -- so it's stepped in and issued new requirements and recommendations in its Elements of Performance and Medical Staff chapters. Learn how to meet these regulatory guidelines to keep your environment violence-free -- and in compliance -- with clinical nurse educator Dianne Ditmer. In this 1-hour audio learning session, she'll walk you through all the fine print of the Joint Commission's requirements, with a special emphasis on how nurses can identify and prevent violence at the front lines. At the end of this seminar, you'll understand the types and frequency of disruptive behaviors and what you need to do to stay compliant.

Topics covered:

  • The definition of workplace violence, including "horizontal violence" and disruptive behaviors.
  • Key factors that contribute to tolerance of violence in healthcare settings.
  • A rundown of the Joint Commission requirements and recommendations that address inappropriate, disruptive, and violent behaviors in your workplace.
  • 3 myths and red flags of violent, disruptive behavior.
  • The real impact of violence in your healthcare setting -- from patient care and medical errors to staff satisfaction.
  • Discover your biggest obstacle to reducing violence -- and how you can overcome it.
