Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum Education Workshop
April 23 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Are you a care worker that faces the risk of violence during your work day? Do you have the tools and training needed to de-escalate unpredictable and potentially dangerous situations?
Due to COVID-19, SafeCare BC is now running the regular 8-hour in-person workshops through Zoom.
Injuries arising from acts of violence or aggression are one of the leading injury–types among continuing care workers. These types of situations can often be avoided or managed by using current and leading-practice violence prevention skills and techniques.
Taking a violence prevention workshop will help make you and your workplace safer!
Led by an expert health care facilitator, the Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum, delivered by SafeCare BC, will teach you how to prevent and de-escalate potentially violent situations in the workplace and how you can protect yourself in the event of a behavioural crisis.
This session builds on concepts covered in the e-learning modules, providing you with the opportunity to practice and apply your knowledge in various scenarios that have been customized for the continuing care sector.
Please note: the e-learning modules are prerequisites for this course and must be completed prior to taking part in this in-class component of the course.
To attend these sessions, the learner must have:
- Webcam (will be on during the course)
