Violence Against Healthcare Workers
Sep 29, 2020
PHI Productions

Health workers in healthcare facilities, homecare, hospital staff, and many others have long been recognized as crucial components in a functioning and thriving society. They provide crucial services to the public to ensure that population health needs are met. Despite their important societal contributions, the World Health Organization estimates that health workers are at high risk of violence all over the world; this violence can be perpetrated by patients, their caregivers, or members of the general public. The Public Health Insight Podcast discusses the prevalence and incidence of type 2 violence - violence perpetrated by patients and/or visitors, the underlying root causes, and the overall barriers and facilitators of health worker safety.

Partnership with the Global Health Students and Young Professionals Summit

The Canadian Global Health Students & Young Professionals Summit (GHSYPS) aims to give space to students and young professionals (SYPs) involved or interested in the global health field. This is the forum for global health SYPs to connect, network, engage, and be inspired. Learn more about GHSYPS by visiting: https://ghsyps.ca/. The Summit takes place on Saturday, October 17, 2020 - it is free to register!
