Violence Prevention: Safeguarding Frontline Healthcare Workers and Beyond

Community and workplace violence is a significant problem worldwide. Understanding how community-based violence spills over into the work setting is key to developing prevention strategies. When healthcare employees are victims of workplace violence, there can be significant psychological and physical trauma to the involved employee and collateral impacts to other staff. A multi-faceted approach is essential to protect our communities, workforce, patients and visitors from violence and to respond quickly, compassionately, and effectively when violent events occur.

Participants will learn about CommonSpirit’s approach to prevention of community and workplace violence and how one Division is responding to employees who are victims.
