The Safe & Secure Hospitals Conference will form a unique gathering of hospital and security management from across Australia (clinicians, security, police, HR, OH&S, legal and ambulatory representatives), and seek to create a shared understanding of how behaviours of concern can be best managed in healthcare.
Speakers provide advice, information and experiences on how to best manage a range of safety and security issues including staff training, violence prevention, violence risk assessment; and aim to promote closer collaboration between clinicians and security personnel, with the end goal of making the hospital environment a safer place for healthcare staff, patients and visitors.
