About this Course

  • Do you place a priority on your personal safety and security?
  • Would you like to increase your confidence in dealing with threatening situations?
  • Are you required to prevent and/or manage aggression and violence?

The Stay Safe and Secure (SSS) course is designed to enable the remote health staff to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent and manage with confidence incidences that threaten personal safety and security in a remote health setting with a focus on aggression and violence.

Who is this course for?

The SSS course is designed to be engaging and informative whilst meeting the learning needs of the remote and isolated health workforce (clinicians, managers, administrators and support staff).
