Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum (PVPC) Refresh
The refreshed Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum (PVPC) will update mandatory training for people working in healthcare to reflect current work environments, using cultural safety and humility, diversity, trauma-informed practice, and other best practices. This program is designed to help people prevent violent incidents in the workplace, and to protect themselves and others from workplace violence. More than 300,000 people working in healthcare will benefit from this initiative.
We are collaborating with the Ministry of Health, along with representatives from health authorities, health employers, health unions, physicians, WorkSafeBC, SafeCare BC, and other experts in the B.C. healthcare system. Funding for this initiative was provided by the Ministry of Health.
