Exploring the Ten-Point Plan to End Violence: Point 8 – Provide post-incident support 

6 September 2019 

Any staff member who has been on the receiving end of aggressive or violent behaviours should be provided with appropriate follow-up support. Such a process should be covered in a plan that truly aims to address violence and aggression in health care settings. At the very least, this process should provide for impacted to staff to receive:

  • extensive and appropriate follow up;
  • support and care; 
  • information about access to the workers’ compensation system; and
  • information on, and support throughout, the police reporting system process.
