Including families in the development of patient care plans can help to identify at-risk behaviours, triggers and how to manage the behaviour. With that in mind, any plan to address violence and aggression should include:
- Developing Patient Care Plans in partnership with a patient and their family to identify care priorities, particularly if a high-risk of aggression or violence is identified .
- Developing management plans to identify triggers for aggression or violence with plan to manage the behaviour.
- Involving family members to ensure clear standards of behaviour are met.
