Goal

To reduce threatening, violent and/or responsive behaviours by patients against HHS staff.

Brief Description

Components of the Behaviour Safety Risk Communication and Care Planning (BSR) program include implementing safety risk screening and communication alerts, creating patient BSR care plans, and applying interventions to mitigate risk. The program is currently being implemented at the Juravinski, Hamilton General, St. Peter’s, West Lincoln Memorial and McMaster Children’s hospitals, as well as the Urgent Care Centre. The CEBI team is responsible for conducting an evaluation of the program implementation.
