Updated Policy Fosters Safe, Respectful Workplaces

June 5, 2019

The Respectful Workplaces and the Prevention of Harassment and Violence Policy has been approved and is now in effect.  This policy replaces the Workplace Violence: Prevention and Response policy.

The Respectful Workplaces and the Prevention of Harassment and Violence policy and associated procedures explains what medical leaders need to know about respectful workplaces and the prevention of harassment and violence to make sure our people feel safe, healthy and valued.

It provides our people with guidance in how to prevent, identify, report and mitigate all types of workplace harassment and violence — external party, worker-to-worker, patient-to-worker, and domestic violence in the workplace.

For the policy suite login to the AHS network via the portal and visit the Respectful Workplaces and the Prevention of Harassment and Violence Policy page.

The Maternal, Newborn, Child & Youth (MNCY) Strategic Clinical Network is pleased to release the Alberta Antenatal Pathway, an online clinical resource tool developed to support clinicians and nurses who provide antenatal care with quick and easy access to evidenced-based, peer-reviewed, and up-to-date information, clinical decision tools, and links to Alberta-based resources.

By applying the pathway consistently, patients can be confident that assessment and access to appropriate care is based on their unique risk factors, no matter where they live in Alberta.
