A 2011 National Crime Victimization Survey estimated that between 1993 and 2009, health-care workers had a 20-percent higher rate of workplace violence than the average seen by all workers.

This webinar will increase awareness among physicians and other healthcare providers about the growing problem of workplace violence in all healthcare settings. Participants will learn about risk factors for workplace violence, the ways in which violence impacts the workplace at an organizational level, principles of workplace violence mitigation covered in the 2016 federal guidelines, and the requirements of the new Washington Workplace Violence prevention plan.
