Learn about emerging best practices for employers, coworkers and human resources professionals to effectively recognize, proactively respond to, and work to prevent incidents of violence against colleagues that can have disastrous consequences for the workplace. Presenters from Futures Without Violence, St. Joseph Medical Center at the University of Maryland, and House of Ruth Maryland, will reflect on lessons learned from a collaborative project to build an intimate partner violence prevention and response program for health care workers.
