Conflict Management in the Workplace (RAH Campus)

Aim of course

We spend a great deal of our time at work and it is expected we do this alongside other people, often in workplace teams to achieve a common goal. This doesn’t always go smoothly and we are not always surrounded by people who have good communication and interpersonal skills. Sometimes after challenging experiences we may think to ourselves,’ I wish I could have approached that differently’.

This course has been developed to assist staff to identify and build on behaviours which can enhance interactions with those around them, identifying problematic behaviours and how and when to intervene when disruptive or ineffectual behaviours impact on us.  A further aim of the program is to build on personal insights, skills, and knowledge that may assist us with communicating effectively with others and to do so without exacerbating problem situations.

While this program doesn’t look at clinically driven challenging behaviours, the skills and information you receive will be beneficial in in building positive relationships with colleagues as well as consumers.

The course covers:

  • What is conflict?
  • The impact of conflict
  • Signs and stages of conflict
  • The “back story” of conflict
  • Behaviours in conflict
  • Issues Vs relationships
  • Assertion Vs aggression
  • Self-awareness & awareness of others
  • Understanding communication
  • Active listening & responding
  • Building currency with others

Learning Outcomes

To enable participants to:

  • Identify signs, stages and possible causes of conflict in the workplace
  • Propose basic strategies to deal with one to one workplace conflicts
  • Use communication skills to facilitate constructive responses to conflict in the workplace

Entry requirements:  Nil.

Long Acting Intramuscular (LAI) Train the Trainer Workshops - Mental Health Services

Long Acting Intramuscular (LAI) Train the Trainer Workshops - Mental Health Services

Workshop Aim

We are calling for nominations for trainers from all five local health networks (LHN’s). Trainers will assist in the development of the training program and then refresh nurses within their LHN in LAI injection techniques.

Learning Outcomes

A South Australian 2006 Coroner’s inquest highlighted a case of a consumer who was receiving regular depot medication. It was noted after a tragic event involving the death of another person that the consumer had very low plasma blood levels of antipsychotic medication. At issue was the person’s size which may have been an impediment to the effective delivery of the depot medication. Increased body weight is an issue for mental health consumers with 40% being in the obese weight range1. This raises issues about effective depot technique.

The training group (6-10) will participate in the training program that has been put together by the project team. The program is split into three parts;

  • A review of LAI injections used, pharmacology of antipsychotics and current medications in use and their delivery techniques.
  • Site selection, anatomical markers, injection technique and safety
  • Accreditation in practice, assessment of 5 intramuscular injections including 2 deltoid and 2 ventrogluteal.

Suitable For

Expression of interest for Nurses and Medical Staff to nominate as LAI Injection Refresher Trainers for their LHN’s.

Clinical Practice Consultants, Medication Clinic Coordinators, Clinical Facilitators, Nurse Education Facilitators, Clinical Nurses, Practice Nurses and Medical Staff are invited to express their interest in becoming LAI injection refresher trainers.

MAPA - Managing Actual and Potential Aggression (CALHN)

This programme has been designed to enhance your understanding and management of disruptive, aggressive, and/or violent behaviour and aims to ensure that everyone involved in crisis situations can maintain the Care, Welfare, Safety and Security of all involved.

The programme will be delivered to you within a legal and professional framework consistent with current national standards, our organisation’s policies and guidance, and current research, as well as recognised best practices.  By the end of the programme, you will have explored and developed a range of psychological and physiological responses to behaviour that will enable you to minimise the potential harm disruptive, aggressive, and/or violent behaviour can cause.

The ultimate focus of this event is to ensure that you gain the essential knowledge, skills and confidence to prevent and deescalate crisis situations so that restrictive practices can be avoided.  Additionally, this programme will ensure that you  have the necessary skills to manage risk behaviour when it does occur, using a range of MAPA physical interventions that aim to minimise risk without damaging the professional and supportive relationship you have established with the individuals in your care.

Available to CALHN employees only

Please note there will be a $35 fee for the MAPA Workbook provided at the course.
