Training Overview Description

A breathtaking statistic that cannot be ignored: 1 in 4 nurses are assaulted in the workplace.

Workplace violence against nurses happens every day. The exact prevalence is not fully known. Effective reporting will allow us to understand the scope of the problem. We must take steps now to prevent all incidences of violence against nurses.

Topics to be addressed during this live, free, interactive webinar:
• Barriers to reporting workplace violence, the importance of reporting, and how we can overcome those barriers
• The path to a "zero-tolerance" workplace as part of an effective safety culture
• Best practices for workplace violence prevention and response
• How to support ourselves and our co-workers when we do experience workplace violence

Attendance is free for both ANA members and non-members. Individual pre-registration is required.

This program is informational only; no contact hours will be awarded.
