OVERVIEW:
Violence or abuse experienced in the workplace is a critical issue that many organizations face. Nurses are at increased risk for experiencing workplace violence due to their close contact with patients as well as working in an occupational environment marked by stress and burnout. It is imperative that nurses be well educated and fully informed as they deal with this daunting topic. This course will review the topic of violence in the workplace, discuss steps that can be taken to prevent or diffuse its effects and most importantly, explain how to create and implement an effective workplace violence prevention plan. The purpose of this course is to provide nurses with information so they may better recognize, address, and prevent violence in their workplaces.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the scope of workplace violence in healthcare.
  • Recognize risk factors and hazards commonly associated with workplace violence.

DORA Rulemaking Requirements for Carriers Regarding In-Network & Out-of-Network Coverage December 3, 2018

The Department of Regulatory Agencies - Insurance will be holding a rulemaking hearing on Monday, December 3rd, 2018, 2:00 pm on rules regarding 4-2-61. The hearing will be held at: 1560 Broadway, Suite 110 D, Denver CO 80202.

The purpose of this rulemaking is: 

The purpose of this regulation is to establish requirements for carriers to provide in-network cost-sharing for out-of-network emergency room claims and prohibit carriers from limiting coverage for emergency services to only in-network facilities, pursuant to § 10-16-704(5.5), C.R.S. Further, this regulation seeks to address the issue of provider contracting practices and how non-participation in carrier networks may lead to increased premiums and increase the cost of care.

If you believe there will be a significant negative impact on small business, job creation or economic competitiveness, you may request that the Department of Regulatory Agencies require the rulemaking agency to prepare a cost-benefit analysis of a proposed rule or amendment. This request must be made to the Department of Regulatory Agencies by Thursday, November 15th, 2018.

You may also submit comments directly to the rulemaking agency for the agency's consideration during the upcoming rulemaking hearing.

We hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you for taking the time to participate in the rulemaking process.

Director
Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Refor
