About the Event
The Alaska Hospital & Healthcare Association (AHHA) is partnering with HSS to offer all AHHA member facilities a one-hour active shooter virtual seminar designed specifically for healthcare workers, including medical staff, professional support staff, and volunteers, who may encounter potentially dangerous individuals.
Unlike generic programs, this program is focused exclusively on situations healthcare workers are likely to encounter.
- Compare/contrast the nature of violence in varying settings.
- Discuss the progression of preparatory activities along a pathway to violence.
- Discuss the various warning signs an individual may exhibit during the planning phase.
- Learn effective response techniques in an active threat to ensure the safety of patients, staff, and visitors.
- Understand how a facility can maintain critical operations during an extended response to an active threat.
- Learn how to facilitate coordination and communication with community partners during an active threat.
This training is made possible with funding from the Alaska State Hospital Preparedness Program grant.
