Society can no longer consider healthcare institutions as sacred grounds, immune from acts of violence. The alarming number of violent acts compels us to increase worker and employer awareness of violence risk factors and to provide strategies for reducing exposure.
Join certified forensic nurse and clinical educator Dianne Ditmer, PhD, RN, CFN, DABFN, FACFE, SANE, for this 1-hour teleconference that will shed light on the full continuum and broad definition of workplace violence, especially as it pertains to nurses. Understanding the types and frequency of violent behaviors experienced by nurses will provide the foundation for early recognition and prevention of violence. You’ll also walk away with the skills to build an environment that promotes staff satisfaction, increases recruitment and retention, and reduces medical errors.
Who should attend: Healthcare providers, including nurses, social workers and administrators, law enforcement, legal counsel, risk managers, patient advocates and ombudsmen.
