Prerequisite: Violence Prevention for Medium and High Risk Departments (8 Modules), accessible on the LearningHub (phsa.ca).
Healthcare workers learn the steps needed to prevent and protect against violence in the workplace. The curriculum is based on overarching principles and a Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum framework which identifies four main responsibilities in preventing and protecting against violence in the workplace:
1) Recognize Risks and Behaviours
2) Assess and Plan
3) Respond to the Risk
4) Report and Communicate Post-Incident
Participants will learn the foundational knowledge regarding those tasks, first in the series of e-learning modules and then by applying that knowledge in the hands-on session designed to reinforce and practice what they need to do to prevent and protect against workplace violence.
This workshop is a mandatory requirement prior to practicum/clinical placements and is the final component of the Preventing and Protecting Against Violence in the Workplace program which prepares students to undertake practicum placements in health authorities.
Students must complete the eight online modules through the PHSA LearningHub before attending the in-class session.
