If you answered yes to any of these questions, we encourage you to learn more about our online Certificate in Forensic Trends and Issues in Contemporary Healthcare. The program is designed to empower at-risk professionals with the tools needed to assess, intervene, and prevent workplace assault and violence.
The certificate program examines contemporary trends and issues related to the wide range of interpersonal violence, crime and sudden violent death that may be encountered in a variety of healthcare settings. Theoretical tenets, methods for assessment and related implications for intervention and/or referral will be examined from a multifaceted perspective - including that of the offender, crime victim, families, and the healthcare community-at-large.
The program is intended for post-baccalaureate practitioners, graduate students and healthcare educators across the continuum of specialties and agencies. These broad inclusion criteria are recommended given that all healthcare agencies/providers are at some level of risk potential for violence by patients, families, visitors, students or other employees.
