April 7: Summit Held on Violence in Healthcare Workplaces


Healthcare professionals and partners from throughout BC met at the Summit to Prevent Workplace Violence in Health Care. Participants heard first hand from frontline workers and research experts, discussed best practices and identified ways healthcare workplaces can be made safer, including proposals already put forward by the BC Nurses’ Union. The summit was intended to be a first step toward developing a collaborative action plan to address system gaps and create a more effective model of safety for staff and patients.
