Webinar – Violence Triage (CONCEPT)
October 26, 2016
1000 – 1130 (PST)
Dr. Kelly A. Watt
This webinar will provide an overview of the Violence Triage. This Violence Triage was developed to assist professionals and workplaces in fulfilling their professional obligations under statutory law, common law, and professional codes of ethics to screen for and respond to warning signs related to violence risk. Failure to do so could result in legal liability if actions failed to meet professional standards and resulted in harm to others. The Violence Triage will help professionals and workplaces to make immediate decisions about receiving and assessing information concerning warning signs for violence risk, develop an action plan for resolution, and meet organizational reporting requirements. By using an evidence-based process to make these decisions, workplaces will be protecting themselves from potential liability and protecting others from future harm.
