Healthcare has become a high-risk profession when it comes to workplace violence. So much so that the health care and social service industries are five times as likely to suffer a workplace violence injury than workers overall. Practices who take the opportunity to prepare, educate, and train their staff are better able to address the risks and incidents of violence in the workplace. In this session, the speakers will use real-world examples and personal experience to highlight risks and warning signs. Attendees will be instructed on the importance of conducting security vulnerability assessments to find risk factors within their facility and creating and implementing policies and an emergency action plan to help prepare staff in the event of a workplace violence incident.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify workplace violence, warning signs and how it affects staff and operations
  2. Review the responsibilities of management and staff in identifying, preventing, and protecting individuals from workplace violence
  3. Express the need for an emergency action plan to address workplace violence and create protocols for transitioning from patient care to self-preservation
