Workplace violence (WPV) is defined as an act or threat occurring at the workplace that can include any of the following: verbal, nonverbal, written, or physical aggression; threats, intimidation, harassment, or humiliating words or actions; bullying; sabotage; sexual harassment; physical assaults; or other behaviors of concern involving staff, licensed practitioners, patients, or visitors.

By assessing worksites, preparing employees through training, and providing resources such as clear reporting procedures, healthcare facilities can help to reduce the impact of this hazard on the workforce and continue to ensure a safe place to provide care for patients. Whether your facility already has a workplace violence program or is just starting to develop one, IPRO HQIC has a compendium of tools and resources to ensure that all aspects of this hazard are considered throughout the process.

This collection contains research articles, best practices webinars, planning templates, assessment tools, and online trainings related to workplace violence in healthcare settings.
