This toolkit is an online hub for resources, research, information, tools and best practices related to violence in health care workplaces. The purpose of this toolkit is to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for relevant resources on this topic, to share and spread the implementation of best practices related to violence prevention and return to work programmes in jurisdictions across Canada. Canada's nurses hope that these resources will help spur governments, employers, unions and individuals to take action to end workplace violence in health care across the country. If you have questions about these resources, or wish to submit a resource for inclusion, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page.
