As part of our mandatory training, all care staff receive MAPA TRAINING (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression) MAPA training is run over 4 days with 2 days theory and 2 days of practical.
MAPA teaches management and intervention techniques to cope with escalating behaviour. The course equips participants with the skills and confidence to decelerate behaviours that challenge and champion a culture of Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security. The key benefits offered by MAPA include:
- Compliance with and commitment to statutory regulations and standards, such as those required by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and BILD.
- A safe and reassuring environment for staff and patients.
- A reduction in injuries, through deceleration methods, and a decrease in physical interventions.
- Greater staff skills in the use of verbal and non-verbal de-escalation techniques.
- Stronger relationships among colleagues and patients.
- More staff confidence in making the best decision about using restrictive interventions
