Due to the relative infrequency of major disasters, most health systems are not prepared to handle a disaster from an emergency medicine standpoint. This under preparedness often leads to an inadequate allocation of resources to meet the emergency medicine challenges of a disaster. The key to a successful disaster plan is ensuring that every member of your ED is properly trained and responsive in a disaster scenario. Our faculty has worked in over 30 countries around the world to implement best practices in disaster planning and can help you:
- Create and implement guidelines and metrics;
- Train your staff in effective practices and response time;
- Efficiently allocate your resources and supplies.
