Summary of "Leveraging a Public Health Framework and Community Advisory Board to Innovate Workplace Violence Intervention Strategies."

Even with extensive evidence documenting the incidence, risk factors, and negative outcomes of workplace violence (WPV) against emergency department (ED) employees, there is a lack of intervention strategies reported that could be subjected to a clinical trial in the ED setting. The purpose of this article is to report the outcomes of a novel process adapted from the Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health for soliciting intervention strategies from a WPV Community Advisory Board (CAB) organized by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's WPV prevention guidelines. Ten professionals comprising both practitioners and researchers from a variety of disciplines ultimately constituted the WPV CAB. In total, 127 strategies to address WPV in ED settings organized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's WPV guideline elements were recommended. The use of a CAB and the Framework was shown to be effective for generating WPV intervention strategies.
