Description

Zero Tolerance: Ethics in the prevention of workplace violence for mental health professionals - 6 CEs

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, more assaults occur in the health care and social services industries than in any other. Nurses experience the most assaults, but physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, nurses’ aides, therapists, technicians, home healthcare workers, social/welfare workers, and emergency medical care personnel are all at risk of violence by patients or a patient’s friends or relatives.

This course is designed to address the effects of violence and present practical workplace violence prevention programs and measures to protect staff and clients. We will also delve into the healing process with an emphasis on the psychological supports as part of an employer’s crisis response from the beginning.

Training Course Objectives:

  • Discuss the definition and types of workplace violence.

  • Describe the incidence and consequences of workplace violence.

  • Identify risk factors and responses to risk factors, including those specific to the healthcare industry.

  • Identify healthcare workers’ responsibilities in responding to workplace violence and measures for de-escalation in cases of aggressive persons.

  • Outline elements of a workplace violence prevention program and barriers to its effectiveness.

  • Discuss effective institutional and employer initiatives to reduce workplace violence.
