Health professionals and staff working in primary health care settings are often subject to aggressive behaviour. These behaviours may occur for various reasons related to health, social or psychological issues or the environment. Effective communication strategies are essential to manage aggressive behaviours and prevent escalation to violence. Larter has developed a practical workshop to engage participants in discussion about aggressive behaviour and provide participants the opportunity to discuss and demonstrate effective communication strategies to reduce aggression and maintain a safe working environment for all.

These are not clinical decisions, but what guides this decision making? This module identifies the relevant RACGP standards, practice systems and processes that should be established by the clinical and management team to safely implement triage in general practice settings and allows participants the opportunity to engage in discussion around triage case scenarios.
