Webinar: Road to Resiliency: Preparedness and Response: Planning for Mass Violence

This webinar is the third in a series highlighting the National Mass Violence Victimization Resource Center (NMVVRC) and explores how hospitals and health systems can better prepare for and respond to the immediate-, short- and long-term needs for victims of mass violence incidents.

From the clinician’s perspective, speakers will address the elements of preparedness and response, specifically outlining how hospitals and health systems can best provide for victims, care givers, communities and health systems.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the advantages of addressing mass violence incidents through a systems-based approach.
  2. Understand how careful and systematic consideration of the continuum of issues that arise during the victims’ recovery can facilitate the desired endpoint – improved outcomes for all.
  3. Discuss factors to consider for training the next generation of clinicians to respond to mass violence incidents.
