Protect yourself from workplace injury due to violence.

Overview of the Workshop:

Injuries arising from acts of violence or aggression are the second-most common injury type among continuing care workers. Learn how to prevent and de-escalate potentially violent situations in the workplace, and how you can protect yourself in the event of a behavioural crisis with the Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum (PVPC) core classroom course. This 8-hour classroom session is led by an expert health care facilitator. The session builds on concepts covered in the e-learning modules, providing you with the opportunity to practice and apply your knowledge in various scenarios.

Learn practical applications to identify risk factors of violence and de-escalation techniques.

Full-day educational training (8:30am – 4:30pm) with approval from your supervisor.

Book at least 2 weeks in advance. Spots are limited. All workshops take place at Menno Place Hospital Chapel.
