Healthcare Security & Violence Survival   
The ACT Cert™ Healthcare Security & Violence Prevention course provides up-to-date information and practical knowledge necessary to effectively address the threats of Active Shooters and terrorism in the medical workplace. There is also a hands-on version of this course available.
In this video we demonstrate how quickly a simple customer service issue can escalate. This short video gives you a realistic glance into much of the topics which will be covered in the following lessons. These topics include handling disgruntled patients, effective emergency communication, violent behavior signs, and much more. As you watch this segment, ask yourself: are your staff and clinic prepared to handle a potentially deadly emergency?
Indicators and Warnings Module Price: $20.00

Understanding attack pre-cursors provide early warning and can help prevent attacks. To prevent attacks, we must recognize risk factors and violence tendencies and recognize behavioral indicators.

Acts of violence and Active Shooter attacks are not random or unpredictable. The vast majority of Active Shooter and targeted attacks have provided distinct Indicators & Warning (I&W) that were ignored or misunderstood. In order to prevent attacks it is imperative that we collect, correlate and communicate Essential Elements of Information (EEI) from our environment and circumstances. This can be done successfully by adhering to Best Practices addressed in this lesson.

Prevention Module Price: $25.00

Violence is Preventable! To prevent violence our focus must remain on identifying people with violent intentions, not understanding them.

Prevention is being pro-active and anticipating potential risks and mitigating them before they happen. In order to recognize risk factors, identify attack pre-cursors and issue timely alerts, we must know how to gauge the Accuracy, Relevancy and Timeliness (ART) of the information collected. This can be done successfully by adhering to Best Practices addressed in this lesson.

Response Module Price: $30.00

In order to survive Active Shooter or terrorist attacks, people at the scene must be able to work together and take immediate actions. In life threatening circumstances, we automatically resort to employing skills and a plan that have been practiced previously. We have no time, nor the presence of mind, to plan and execute a new course of action when under duress. Pre-incident training in effective response improves personal safety.

Survival Module Price: $35.00

The next tragedy can be prevented and more lives would be saved if we focused on training on what to do to save ourselves when the next attack occurs.

We must know what to expect and how to ACT when escape is impossible and help is delayed. Remember that life is beautiful, and it is worth fighting for!
