Handling Aggressive Residents and Patients with Dementia for Patient Care Assistants training course

When a patient becomes upset, makes demands, shouts, uses foul language, or threatens others, they are exhibiting aggressive physical behavior. These behaviors are not only disruptive, but they can also be harmful to healthcare workers, family members, and other patients. Patient care assistants often interact with patients who exhibit aggressive behaviors due to a variety of reasons. This course will help to identify the causes behind these behaviors, the triggers that cause the behaviors, and steps for successfully interacting with patients displaying aggressive behaviors.
