Client Focused Solutions for the Health and Community Care Sector
Providing client-focused solutions is the key to eliminating workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities.
Headed by Executive Director Henrietta Van Hulle and a team of regional health & community care experts, Henrietta and her team serve the health and community care sector to address a number of challenges. These challenges are due, in part, to increasing client care demands, including: the aging population, increased client acuity in Community and Long-Term Care, increased obesity rates and increased prevalence of dementia-related illnesses.
Today, healthcare workers have 1.5 times the number of lost-work days than the average Canadian worker.
Recently PSHSA was assigned to help lead with the Province of Ontario, in establishing a Workplace Violence Prevention in Health Care Leadership Table to better protect health care professionals. Members will bring together stakeholders and experts, including patient advocates to provide advice on how to reduce and prevent workplace violence.
An implementation plan will help protect the health and safety of health care professionals as part of the government’s four-part plan.
