CANCELED – Workplace Violence In Person Learning Collaborative
March 19, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
The impact of COVID-19 on the greater Northwest region has disrupted hospital operations and forced many events to be canceled. In accordance with current recommendations from the State Department of Health, WSHA is CANCELING our scheduled Thursday, March 19, 2020 in person Workplace Violence Learning Collaborative at the SeaTac Airport. We want to keep you safe, support your focus on response efforts and not pull you out of your hospitals and communities at this critical time.
Given the unknown duration of the impact of COVID-19 on our region we have not identified a future date to reschedule this event. We know that WPV is an important issue for many hospitals and we’ll be working to identify a future event date as appropriate. In addition, we will be exploring opportunities to move some content to a web-enabled platform.
If you were planning to travel, most hotels should still accept cancellations. For anyone who was planning on flying, contact your airline provider as many are operating under a very generous cancellation policy.
We apologize if this causes inconvenience to anyone. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your ongoing efforts to help address WPV and support COVID-19 response efforts.
Learning Collaborative Objectives:
At the conclusion of this collaborative, participants will be able to:
- Apply strategies and tools from the OR workplace violence (WPV) toolkit to address gaps identified in their hospital assessment;
- Compile best practices from across the region for addressing WPV; and
- Assess innovative approaches to addressing WPV and the applicability for their hospital.
Collaborative participants will leave the event with a concrete understanding of gaps or opportunities for improvement in addressing WPV and specific strategies that can be implemented to address WPV in their hospital.
*Addressing WPV is a team effort. We suggest attending this learning collaborative with colleagues across your facility who are critical in addressing WPV.
