PVPC - Preventing and Protecting Against Violence in the Workplace

Cost: $130
Prerequisite: Violence Prevention for Medium and High Risk Departments - 8 Modules - accessible on the LearningHub (

Health care 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.

Delivery method: In-class
