Our Use Of Force and The Law course is for health & social care staff who may be exposed to aggression and find themselves needing to protect themselves.
The course is 3 hours that can be offered as a standalone certificated course or as part of a full PMVA course. This course is also part of every Breakaway & Personal Safety Course.
This course will help learners to understand their legal right to protect themselves should they find themselves in situations posing a risk of harm.
However, they will also learn how to balance those rights against health and social care codes of practice and professional standards and understand the consequences for the unjustified use of force.
