Violence, Active Shooter, and Mental Health: What the Dental Team Should Be Aware of; Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022, 7:30 - 9:00 PM ET; 1.5 CEU's, Live Webinar

Now more than ever, we live in an unpredictable world where sudden large-scale acts of violence can occur. In the first six months of 2022 over 300 mass shootings have taken place in our nation. The unfortunate reality is that being prepared is not optional. Still, a requirement for the dental team since an increasing amount of these public/workplace tragedies has taken place in hospitals or health clinics.

This course is an introductory overview to help begin the discussion and planning for your office response to better address the potential of violence at the workplace, and video simulations will be part of the 90 mins presentation.
