Healthcare workers are four times more likely to experience harassment and violence at work than other professions.
AHS offers harassment and violence training for all workers including employees, medical and midwifery staff, students and volunteers. Learn how to appropriately respond to an incident of harassment or violence by taking the training that is appropriate to your role.
In addition to the Required Organizational Learning (ROL): Respectful Workplaces & the Prevention of Harassment & Violence policy course that all staff must complete once, there are two more levels of harassment and violence training available. To obtain proof of course completion for Required Organizational Learning, AHS employees should access training through MyLearningLink, accessible on Insite.
Medical staff can access all three levels of harassment and violence training. To obtain proof of course completion for Required Organizational Learning, medical staff with current AHS credentials must complete these courses on MyLearningLink, accessible on Insite.
Only applicable to students and instructors who are starting or currently in a placement with AHS.
All students and instructors are required to complete the Required Organizational Learning: Respectful Workplaces and Prevention of Harassment and Violence policy course before starting a placement with AHS. Students and instructors in a current placement must complete this course by September 1. Speak to your preceptor about additional training and other required prerequisites.
