2022 Stronger - P140 - Creating and Executing Tactics Within a Workplace Violence Prevention Portfolio - On Demand

Violence against staff in the workplace is increasing. Preventing this violence requires a multitude of tactics that work together to enhance staff safety. Our organization completed a gap analysis and compared it with best practices to create a framework and infographic of the key elements for success, such as risk assessment tools, dashboards, electronic health record cues and staff support. Workplace violence prevention was made a top priority in the organization through executive sponsorship. Workgroups were created for each element and the deliverable outcome was a standardized approach to reduce and prevent workplace violence.
