Challenging Behaviours in the Perioperative Environment

Author - AfPP. ISBN - 978-1-904290-15-5.

Violence, bullying and harassment are not new concepts and neither are they confined to patients and relatives on healthcare staff; many incidents have been reported among managers and practitioners. This publication aims to raise awareness about the incidence of workplace violence and bullying, who, why and how people bully or commit acts of violence, the legislation regulating such behaviour and to offer practical advice and guidance to those who are victims of bullying/violent behaviours.

Book cover  - Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting 2014 (e-book)
Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting 2014 (e-book)

Author - AfPP.

Revised and updated, this document sets out the overarching recommendations for a staffing model utilising the associated issues that need to be considered fundamental to every perioperative environment. These environments could be in the public or the independent healthcare sector or indeed anywhere delivering perioperative care.

Staffing ratios are crucial to the overriding principles of the organisation to provide quality care, patient safety and staff welfare in the pressured perioperative setting. This edition of Staffing for patients in the perioperative environment embraces the changes that have occurred in perioperative care and seeks to provide clear guidance for calculating the safe staffing establishments for perioperative facilities.

The formula included in this publication provides a template and calculation guide of the numbers of staff required which, when completed accurately and comprehensively, gives a true reflection of whole time equivalent (WTE) staffing required for your environments. This publication is a guideline but should be viewed as the essential benchmark for perioperative staffing and associated budget for staff resources as the driver, not starting with a budget and then adapting staffing to fit.

Staffing for patients in the perioperative environment:
  • provides clear guidance for calculating safe staffing establishments
  • facilitates effective risk management
  • promotes safe staffing
  • contains a staffing policy template
  • is a valuable tool for perioperative managers
  • Price £8.03 (ebook only)
