Useful references for care and healthcare providers

Maybo has extensive experience helping organisations create positive and safer environments for staff and service users, and in the development of effective training approaches.

We take pride in being at the front of developments in this complex area of risk and liaise extensively, not only with client organisations and their staff, but also with sector bodies, regulators and other experts. Whilst our programmes are consistent with staff and organisation requirements in our specific area of knowledge and skill, there is also a wealth of useful guidance and resources available in the sector.

Maybo has contributed directly to the development of key guidance and qualifications and our Chairman, Bill Fox has chaired a number of national projects and is on the Steering group of the European Network for Training in the Management of Aggression (ENTMA). Bill is also a guest lecturer at the University of South Wales on the subject of organisational approaches to violence reduction.

Below is a selection of useful links to codes of practice, guidance, and expert opinion to support training and development to manage this area of risk.
