As a Personal Support Worker, your job is very rewarding and very demanding. Your safety at work is of the utmost importance and delivering excellent care to clients in our communities starts with your safety and wellbeing. 

By taking part in this short 5-minute survey, you have an opportunity to share your experiences caring for adult clients with dementia who are physically or verbally aggressive or violent. This is your chance to be heard – Have Your Say, Safety is Here to Stay!

Your responses are completely confidential and you can leave the survey at any time if you change your mind. When you finish and exit the survey, you can leave your VHA email address to receive a $5 coffee card. Your email address is not linked to your responses. Your coffee card will be emailed to you within one week after completing the survey.

This study is approved by VHA and the University of Toronto Research Ethics Board. The information you share can help to improve the safety of our clients and all PSWs across VHA and in other organizations too.
