Risk Communication


Risk Communication is a science-based approach for communicating effectively in high concern, high stress, emotionally charged or controversial situations. This course provides an overview of the principles and practices of risk communication and practical ways to use these concepts to better communicate in an emergency situation.

The course is intended for clinicians and managers in community practice sites who might interact with the public or with the media during a public health emergency. This might include community-based physicians, nurses, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants and others working as staff members in such facilities as community health centers, long-term care facilities, and assisted living facilities.
