HA 401B - Special Topics: Emergency Preparedness in Health Care

Natural and manmade disasters have grabbed the headlines in the past few years.  Accrediting and licensing organizations have developed standards for emergency planning for medical providers.   Even when plans are in place, there is often a nagging doubt that they truly prepare staff for all factors faced in extreme situations.   Health care organizations need skilled leaders to address emergency preparedness and medical disaster planning. Written emergency plans, in the absence of drills, will have limited value; the course concludes with disaster drill planning skills.  This course will provide participants with current information on a variety of topics to better address emergency preparedness for healthcare systems before, during, and after disasters.
