Description: 

The Scientific and Organization Committee cordially invites you to attend and register for the third International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector "Linking local initiatives with Global Learning".Work related aggression and violence within the health and social services sector is a major problem which diminishes the quality of working life for staff, compromises organizational effectiveness and ultimately impacts negatively on the provision and quality of care.  These problems pervade both service settings and occupational groups.Considerable attention and advancements in addressing this problem have been achieved from service and organizational perspectives nationally and internationally.  Following two successful conferences in 2008 and 2010 in Amsterdam, the 3rd International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector, will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from October 24-26 2012.  In addition to raising awareness the 2012 conference will provide a platform to share international developments, with a particular emphasis on best practice research and initiatives to effectively respond to the problem.

The Institute is a 2 ½ day course and is open to team coordinators (leaders) and state and territorial level leaders that coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence.The Institute’s primary objective is to build the capacity of team leaders to design and facilitate effective team processes. The team leader plays a key role in a team’s overall development. It is complex, challenging and rewarding work. The social and system improvement teams work towards requires more than knowledge of best practices — it also requires the ability to influence multiple systems and agencies in order to apply that knowledge. The Institute will focus on the skills needed to lead multidisciplinary teams to design, implement, and evaluate their community’sresponse to sexual violence.
