PROactive: Identifying and Managing Violence in the Workplace

Course Overview

As a frontline clinician, did you ever feel inadequately prepared to respond to and manage workplace violence?

We wish to help all health workers feel safe in the clinical workplace. In fall 2020, the PROactive: Partners in Professionalism partnered with the University of Calgary Office of CME&PD to host a three-part webinar series entitled “Identifying and Managing Violence in the Workplace: Experiences and Strategies”. During the webinars, discussion happened around physician experiences of workplace violence, and context-appropriate strategies and tools for prevention and safe response. It was such a valuable conversation that we feel obligated to share the learning materials to a broader audience if you missed the live webinars. We hope you find them helpful.
