Workplace Violence Webinar 

Recorded on Thursday, April 25, 2024
Presented by: Karen Garvey, MPA/HCA, BSN, RN, DFASHRM, CPHRM, CPPS; Vice President, Safety & Clinical Management, Parkland Health

 Violent acts toward the healthcare workforce continue to plague all areas of the healthcare industry. Workplace violence (WPV) in healthcare has been well-documented for several decades. The COVID-19 pandemic brought this issue to the forefront when violence against healthcare workers was widely reported in several professional journals and media outlets. Due to increased focus on workplace violence efforts of the workforce who have endured physical and psychological injuries, several healthcare oversight agencies have stepped forward, publishing standards and/or regulations for healthcare organizations to ensure the safety of their workplace. This presentation will focus on efforts at the national, state (Texas), and local levels to address this significant issue.
