Using Threat Assessments in the Prevention and Intervention of active shooters

Tragic events across the country in recent years have highlighted the dangers posed by targeted violence and active shooters. To identify, evaluate and manage potentially threatening situations affecting our communities, multi-disciplinary Threat Assessment and Management programs must be developed to evaluate and address violence and threats of violence made toward members of the community. Using evidenced-based processes focused on Trust, Training, and Technology, we can significantly reduce the risk and anxiety surrounding these events. This presentation provides real-life examples of Threat Assessments the speaker has investigated and takes you through the parallel journey of investigators and victims, each with unique yet similar frustrations, emotional impacts, and identified gaps in the processes.

Safety, Security, and Emergency Management within the healthcare community, amid a Pandemic.

Description:

During these uncertain times, security and emergency management officials are being tasked with countless duties to mitigate risk.  It is not enough that we keep people safe; we must take on the added role of ensuring people feel safe and focus on reducing anxiety. Pandemics place unexpected burdens on health care professionals, infrastructures, employers, and medical resources. It is crucial to anticipate the stresses associated with this work and put in place supports for health care workers. Preparing and responding to a pandemic involves communication, training, coordination of scare resources, innovative violence reduction strategies,  long term planning, and in the moment, decision making.

This presentation is designed to provide tools and resources to educate clinical leaders, emergency managers, executives, agency trainers, human resources, and security officials based on lessons learned during the pandemic response in a large healthcare setting.
