Steve Summerville, president of Stay Safe Instructional Programs, will present highlights from his crisis course Management of Resistant Behaviour (MORB) to help security professionals cope with the growing and troubling trend of violence in health-care. This course has been endorsed by both the Public Services Health & Safety Association (PSHSA) and ONA.
