ProActive ReSolutions and WorkSafeBC are pleased to present a 1 Day Conference on violence in the health sector. The Conference is taking place on September 16, 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Violence in the health sector is a serious problem internationally that has gained a great deal of attention over the last decade partly as a consequence of tragic cases. Research indicates that health care professionals are among the highest risk occupational groups for victimization by violence, and evidence is accruing to suggest that the problem is even greater then previously feared.
Many health care settings have put significant effort into increasing awareness of this problem and training staff to prevent and respond to violence. This conference will build on your knowledge and skills in this area discussing best practices related to screening, assessing, managing, and responding to violence towards health care professionals. A special focus of the conference will be paid to harassment, stalking and threatening behaviours.
