Active shooters and armed violence represent a rapidly growing issue in America’s hospitals and healthcare facilities. These incidents occur on a near-weekly basis, which means it is time to face the fact that they can also happen in your facility.

Don’t wait until it is too late to develop an emergency response plan! Join HCPro for a live webcast presented by healthcare safety experts Lisa Pryse Terry, CHPA, CPP, and Christian M. Lanphere, PhD, FP-C, NRP, CEM. They will teach participants how to lessen the risk of a violent confrontation and how to prepare facility staff in the event an armed intruder comes through their doors.

At the end of the program, you will be able to:
•    Understand the problems that lead to armed violence in healthcare
•    Recognize risk factors and behaviors of concern in your hospital that could lead to an armed confrontation
•    Incorporate changes to facility design and security measures to help slow down or stop an armed intruder
•    Work with administration and law enforcement to conduct an efficient and informative active shooter drill
•    Identify funding sources to help pay for training and improvements to facility security
