This on-demand professional training program on Violence Risk/Threat Assessment Case Illustrations: Violence in Health Care is presented by Dr. Kelly A. Watt, PhD in partnership with Protect International Risk and Safety Services.
Case Illustrations are one of the most powerful ways to demonstrate the use of a tool for assessing and managing violence risk and how it can be implemented in practice. This program focuses on the use of the Historical-Clinical- Risk-Management-20 Version 3 (HCR-20 V3) to assess risk for general violence in health care settings. The case illustrations highlight both promising practices and challenging issues related to the use of structured professional judgment guidelines such as the HCR-20 V3 in this sector (e.g., reviewing policies and procedures for identifying and responding to violence risk, creating an ad hoc team to coordinate risk management).
