SDAHO Stepping Up to Help Members: Supporting Victims and Communities of Mass Violence Incidents

The American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Hospitals Against Violence (HAV) initiative is proud to partner with the National Mass Violence Victimization Resource Center (NMVVRC) to provide resources and support surrounding incidents of mass violence for the communities and patients served by our hospitals and health systems. Established in 2017 in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), NMVVRC strives to establish best practices to achieve a social understanding of mass violence upon which civic leaders, health care professionals, journalists, policy makers and victim assistance professionals can rely.

The vision is to provide communities access to evidence-based information and resources needed to effectively prepare for and respond to mass violence incidents.

SDAHO continues to be committed to provided healthcare professionals in South Dakota the tools, resources and support they need to better understand and handle mass violence situation. On April 20, 2022, SDAHO offered “Strategies to Reduce Workplace Violence Against Caregivers”. This online educational opportunity was presented by Brian Blenner, Director of Safety Services at Monument Health. This program focused on workplace violence for Monument Health System. The presentation focused on the data, and the strategies which have been implemented to include reactive and proactive approaches when it comes to workplace violence.
