Preventing Violence in Health Care Five steps to an effective program

This document (2005) by WorkSafeBC (the Workers’ Compensation Board) is designed to aid healthcare organisations in developing, implementing and reviewing violence prevention policies. It seeks to aid organisations in: improving the quality of the working environment; eliminating or minimising the risk of physical or psychological injury, or loss of life; limiting the risk of financial loss for both employees and employers; and ensuring that the user has a violence prevention programme meeting standards adhered to in the US. It describes the process for forming such a plan, from establishing a working group to completing a risk assessment, to developing a plan based upon it and trainings and workshops to implement it, to conducting annual audits to assess its continued currency. Designed for a different context (e.g. healthcare in the US), it nonetheless is largely appropriate to NGO health-based programmes elsewhere.
