Join HQI’s Virtual Forum on Use of Force in Managing Workplace Violence

What’s happening: CHA’s Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) will hold a virtual forum on Hospital Workplace Violence: Security Personnel and the Continuum of Force on April 18 from noon to 1 p.m. (PT).  

What else to know: The forum will discuss the pros and cons of various methods used by hospital security officers when responding to escalating levels of threats within a hospital facility, including the use of stun guns. Registration is open.  

Monthly virtual forums are a part of HQI’s Community of Practice on Eliminating Hospital Workplace Violence. The purpose is to connect individuals focused on reducing workplace violence in hospitals through peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Participation is free and open to all CHA and HQI member hospitals.   

The slides and recordings of previous forums are available on the program website
