Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum 

Course Description

Violence prevention education and resources have become a priority for all BC health care organizations due to the increasing prevalence of violent incidents in health care. Health care employers have made a provincial commitment to protect workers from workplace violence.


This training is only one part of a violence prevention program, which also includes violence risk assessments, Code White response plans, and incident investigations and actions to prevent recurrence.
