• Safer, everyday practical skills for managing conflict and behaviours of concern in primary care services

    Personal Safety and Conflict Resolution for Primary Care Services

    Primary care professionals can experience conflict with patients and sometimes need to manage 'challenging' behaviours. Added to this are personal safety risks related to lone and remote working at centres and in the community.

    Proven experience and expertise

    Professionals working in primary care settings strive to provide the best care possible for patients that sometimes present complex physical, psychological and emotional needs.

    Maybo’s award-winning training provides skills to prevent and de-escalate emotive situations and maintain personal safety. This helps centre based teams to:

    • Create a safe and welcoming environment for all
    • Engage patients in ways that reduce conflict and behaviours of concern
    • Ensure effective teamwork in managing incidents
    • Respond to a mental health crisis
    • Adopt safer lone working approaches

    We provide specific programmes for lone workers that include safety when travelling and visiting people's homes, including situation assessment skills, positioning and exit strategies.

    • Maybo has great content relevant to hospital and health services. Experienced trainers were able to take-away some excellent strategies that can be delivered in such a way that feels comfortable and natural. The Maybo trainer was patient and informative and this was appreciated. Quality course/quality trainer. Thanks.

    • The training package was facilitated clearly, concisely and in an easy to understand way. The trainer was engaging and knowledgeable of the course content and catered for the diverse group of learners really well. The trainer kept us on track and encouraged everyone to engage and bring their own experiences. We all had a fabulous week.

    • Please make it known that the whole team had nothing but praise for the trainer and that even the “old hands” found it very stimulating as he raised issues in a very understandable way. May I comment that as a general rule, I have never known of any candidates coming away without having gained a lot from these refresher courses.

    • Very happy with Maybo content and back-up services. I like how the content is aimed at the majority of staff and not just high end situations. The session content and layout of the presentations are a big improvement on previous training packages.

    • May I say a big thank you for the Maybo violence and aggression course for the ITU nurses. I attended the course today and it was excellent. I think the staff would all agree that the knowledge and skills taught will be hugely beneficial, but in addition, it was a great team-building exercise too. I feel it is imperative that all our ITU nurses attend this course.
