Regional Workshop for Staff/Volunteers - Active Citizens' Defense Training

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

VAFCC Regional Workshop: Workplace Safety - Active Threat Citizens' Defense Training

Location: 
Stryker Center - Williamsburg Regional Library
412 N. Boundary Street, Williamsburg, VA 23185

Workshop Summary:

Facing an armed individual with bad intentions in your workplace is every person’s worst nightmare. While you may not be able to stop the individual, you can chose how to react. All employees can help prevent and prepare for potential active threat situations. Preparation can reduce the risk of one of these incidents, and if one occurs, can mitigate or reduce the number of potential victims.  The Active Threat Citizen Defense workshop (A.T.C.D.) aims to enhance preparedness for citizens to “rise to the occasion” instead of “settle to the level of their training.”

This workshop will show you how to recognize hostile situations in your area and attempt to survive them, realize how items around you can be utilized to defend yourself and save your life, understand how the body reacts during stressful situations, and learn to perform “no-skill needed” maneuvers to combat the threats.

This will be the full version of the workshop previewed at the VAFCC Annual Conference in Virginia Beach.

Learn about the findings of Data Blueprint working with a sample of VAFCC Member Clinics to learn about data collection processes and Data Blueprint's recommendations to help VAFCC and Member Clinics to more efficiently and effectively collect and communicate data with community stakeholders.

Data Management in a Free Clinic Setting

Facilitated by Rachel Sposito, FNP, Loudoun Free Clinic

While we know data can tell a story to funders and stakeholders about your clinic's positive impact on the community and your patients' health, collecting and reporting on that data can be a challenging or time-consuming. Technology gaps in your organzation, electronic health records and the differing reporting requests from funders can contribute to challenges in collecting and reporting data. Join us for a discussion with your peers to share ideas regarding data management practices at your clinic.
