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 webinar focuses on the use of the Historical-Clinical- Risk-Management-20 Version 3 (HCR-20 V3) to assess risk for general violence in healthcare settings. The case illustrations will 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). This webinar is appropriate for those new to the field of violence risk/threat assessment, as well as experienced professionals who are looking for an introduction to or refresher in the structured professional judgment approach to violence risk/threat assessment. Although the webinar focuses on cases based in healthcare settings, it is relevant to professionals working in diverse sectors.
