Jan. 25 Workplace Violence Prevention webinar focuses on the patient’s perspective

Employees are invited to an upcoming webinar: “Workplace Violence: A Patient’s Perspective,” noon - 1 pm Thursday, Jan. 25. A first step in preventing or stopping aggressive behavior is understanding what triggers lead to patients’ escalating behavior. Webinar presenters will share insight from the patient’s perspective on how to help reduce workplace violence by: 

  • Understanding patient expectations
  • Increasing communication
  • Addressing basic patient needs
    Recognizing there are circumstances we may be unaware of that can escalate patient behavior

Bridgeport Hospital President Anne Diamond, JD, will host the webinar. Margaret O’Reilly, director, Capacity and Off Shift Operations, YNHH, will serve as facilitator.
