Workplace Violence

Prevention and Intervention

In order to eliminate violence, there must be awareness that the problem exists. Education of nurses, health care workers and administrators is necessary. Prevention programs that address the violence continuum are essential. Efforts must be directed at legislators, members of the judiciary and society at large to assure the safety of all health care workers. The task force advocates comprehensive violence prevention programs in health care settings.
