Free Webinar: Addressing Workplace Violence in Healthcare: A Collaborative Model

Tue, Feb 25 2020

Locations that were once considered safe havens such as schools, places of worship and healthcare institutions are no longer immune to acts of violence, and that includes healthcare, such as hospitals, emergency rooms, and facilities that provide healthcare outside of a hospital environment. As violence continues to increase within the healthcare environment, organizations must take proactive steps to educate clinical and non-clinical staff members on how to be prepared for an event. This webinar will feature actual tools developed and implemented at Mayo Clinic Arizona.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe acts of workplace violence in a healthcare setting and response plans to mitigate risks.
  • Develop action plans for security and nursing professionals to prepare and respond to a workplace violence event.
  • Identify healthcare standards and guidelines aimed at reducing workplace violence incidents.
  • Integrate the importance of communication of multiple teams to provide a rapid response.
