The NHS Violence Reduction Programme in London, in partnership with Health Education England, has developed an eLearning resource for both clinical and non-clinical NHS staff who may work in settings requiring an understanding of violence reduction.
Interpersonal violence affecting young people is a major concern within communities across England. Clinical and non-clinical healthcare settings have a vital role to play in violence reduction efforts, embedded in local communities working alongside other organisations.
Our self-guided eLearning resource provides NHS staff with an understanding of:
- The theoretical drivers of violence
- The practical aspects of identifying those at risk of involvement with violence
- The role of healthcare staff in supporting violence reduction
- Good practice examples, including work around in-hospital violence reduction services
- Social prescribing in Primary Care settings
- Trauma-informed practice in action
The resource can be used to kick-start informal and formal conversations about violence, violence reduction and how healthcare settings can contribute to tackling interpersonal violence.
The eLearning resource will be delivered through the HEE eLearning for healthcare (elfh) Hub, which is free for all NHS staff to access. You can register for a new account or sign in to your existing elfh Hub account and search for ‘Violence Reduction’.
