ACEs Aware: Strategies for Positive Patient Encounters

June 30 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Complimentary for CCALAC Members

Strategies for Positive Patient Encounters take an interpersonal approach to de-escalating challenging provider/patient interactions in healthcare. This training identifies patient and provider factors that can lead to negative interactions with a patient, critical incident, disruptions in care, provider burnout, and potential violence. Providers will be taught tools and strategies to de-escalate these encounters in a patient-centered manner. Finally, the impact of provider self-care and emotion regulation is explored in relation to patient interactions.

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the systemic nature of challenging interactions in healthcare.
  • Identify patient factors contributing to challenging interactions in healthcare.
  • Identify provider factors contributing to challenging interactions in healthcare.
  • Identify self-care factors that impact patient interactions and provider’s ability to manage challenging interactions.
