Workplace Violence Prevention toolkit - 2 new modules!

 RPNAO, with support from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, is pleased to present  self-learning modules on Workplace Violence Prevention. Two new modules have been  developed and will be available soon!

The development of the Workplace Violence Prevention Toolkit was designed to support nurse’s knowledge and confidence in addressing workplace violence and harassment in their workplace. The self-learning modules were developed in sections to provide flexibility of completion; determine the number of modules that best fits your timeframe and return at any time to complete the series. Once you have viewed all of the modules, please continue to our Workplace Violence Prevention quiz, where upon successful completion you'll be emailed a completion certificate to add to your portfolio.
