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.
