Why should you attend?

The healthcare setting is one of the most violent venues in which to work in the U.S. and internationally. Healthcare is unique in that the violence that occurs here has negative ramifications to quality patient care. The Joint Commission has even taken a stand on dealing with unsafe patient care due to abusive (which may constitute violence) behavior by health professionals.

Your role as leaders in your healthcare organization equates to a responsibility to create and sustain a safe working environment for your employees and a safe and healing environment for your patients. This webinar will review the critical elements required to plan, design, develop, implement, and evaluate your healthcare organization’s violence prevention plan.

Are you prepared to deal with an active shooter on one of your patient floors—which happened in a hospital in Minnesota? As we hear more and more about mass shootings, it causes us to pause and wonder if it could really happen in a hospital, clinic, or when visiting a patient’s home. Fortunately, most violence does not rise to that level, but nonetheless, the violence that commonly occurs in healthcare has profound consequences for all involved. It is essential you prepare to prevent and react to minimize the violence that occurs.
