Workplace violence against healthcare workers can be significantly reduced with a comprehensive violence prevention program. This webinar will outline common risk factors for violence, the basics elements of a violence prevention program and strategies for responding to violent events when they occur.

The importance of training nurses and other healthcare workers in recognizing and managing aggressive behavior will be emphasized. This webinar, presented by a recognized expert on workplace violence prevention, will familiarize participants with the ways by which healthcare organizations can ensure physical safety for its employees by preparing in advance. Why should you Attend: Violence against health workers should never be considered as being acceptable or "just part of the job." Not only is there a negative impact on the psychological and physical well being of health-care staff, but also affects their job motivation.

The consequence of violence impacts the quality of care and may lead to major financial losses to a healthcare organization. These may include but are not limited to: Sanctions and fines from OSHA and other government agenciesAdditional difficulties maintaining credentials for the Joint Commission and other credentialing groupsIncreased difficulties in hiring and keeping good employeesHigher insurance premiumsLawsuits by employees and other victimsLower employee moraleDisruption in operations for extended periods of time for crime scene clean up and investigation Many factors place healthcare workers above average risk for violence; they care for people with histories of violent behavior, who may be under the influence of drugs, or who may be delirious from medications, narcotics, or a medical condition such as dementia.
