Event description

Description

This is a 16-hour course dealing with Community Healthcare Planning and Response to Disasters.

When an entire community is affected by a large-scale incident involving mass casualties such as a natural disaster, a pandemic outbreak, or a terrorist attack, response activities require integration of emergency management, healthcare providers, public health officials, public safety officials, and other agencies operating in a community. Large-scale incidents are likely to overwhelm healthcare systems and communities must work together to address the needs of an overwhelming number of patients. Community Healthcare Planning and Response to Disasters will prepare communities to effectively plan for, respond to, and recover from this type of scenario.

This course will provide medium- to high-level decision makers with comprehensive planning tools to mitigate impacts on communities during large-scale incidents. This course examines the need for collaboration among responders in a community-wide disaster response. The NCBRT will deliver training through a combination of facilitated discussion, hands-on training, and traditional classroom-style instruction. Recognizing that response to disasters differs by locale, the course is designed to be tailored based on local participant needs.

The target audience for this course includes the healthcare provider community, emergency management, and responders to healthcare incidents.
