“I’ve been an occupational therapist for six years now and during this time I’ve worked in the fields of forensic mental health, learning disabilities and autism settings. I decided to become a Disability Assessor as I wanted to gain more experience within the community and also expand my knowledge of physical health conditions, while still utilising my core occupational therapy skills. I was also attracted to more flexible working and the potential of being based from home as I have two young children.
After a successful series of healthcare recruitment events in Scotland, England and Ireland, the Health Sector Jobs Fair will be making its way to Cardiff in Wales next month.

Working in Healthcare can be very rewarding. It offers many benefits and opportunities for personal growth but it’s also one of the most responsible and stressful industries. Some nurses argue that “stressful” isn’t powerful enough word for the job and it turns to be much more difficult when people don’t realise or appreciate how chaotic working in this fast paced industry can be.
Nursing is one of the most rewarding career paths but at the same time it is probably one of the most challenging and demanding. Not all patients are polite, happy people and sometimes they can truly test a nurse’s patience and communication skills. Very often verbal and physical abuse from patients is unfortunately a reality. Patients can be rude, aggressive or, at times, dangerous, and working with them can be frustrating and tiring. Knowing how to prevent and handle these situations is something all nurses need to know.
So how do you handle them? We need to understand the reasons for abusive or difficult behaviour first.
