Violence in Healthcare Taskforce report

The Violence in Healthcare Taskforce (Taskforce) was established by the Minister for Health, in August 2015 with Clare Amies (WorkSafe Victoria) as the Chair. The role of the Taskforce was to identify issues and make recommendations to the Minister for Health on opportunities to reduce violence in Victorian hospitals as well as support the implementation of the government’s election commitments to address violence in healthcare.

As a result, the Taskforce has produced this report, which contains findings and associated recommendations to inform the focus on reducing violence in the Victorian health services sector.
