Conference Description:

Up to 95% of healthcare workers have experienced verbal or physical assault - WorkSafe Victoria

The implications of Occupational Violence and Aggression (OVA) have far reaching consequences on the safety and long-term wellbeing of hospital staff, patients and visitors. While OVA is common, it should not be tolerated or become an accepted part of the job.

This conference will focus on:
Strengthening incident prevention and embedding a safety culture
Boosting interdisciplinary and interagency collaboration and communication
Supporting staff wellbeing post-incident
Utilising data and technology to inform hospital initiatives
Navigating legal issues and balancing duty of care with staff safety
