    AOHC 2016 Session 318: An Active Shooter in the Workplace — Tactical and Medical Response Priorities


    This timely and valuable program is available now and free of charge to ACOEM members. Presented in Chicago by David K. Tan, MD, EMT-T, FAAEM at the American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) last April, the program is designed to help the occupational physician understand the intricacies of dealing with an active shooter in the workplace. The program focuses on the need for planning and the coordination between medical staff, security staff, EMS, and police.

    More importantly, the video details the medical care that the occupational physician might be called upon to provide in a situation when an outside response may be delayed.


    ACOEM invites you to share your story about what drew you to practice occupational and environmental medicine (OEM). How did you become involved in the specialty? Was there a specific event or perhaps a mentor who was instrumental in setting your path? You might reflect on the past while pondering the future of OEM and provide some words of wisdom to those who will follow.
