Emergency Management in Hospitals & Healthcare
Emergency management (EM) is often taught in the context of community, provincial, national, and international emergencies. There is currently a gap in disaster and emergency management (DEM) education and training when transitioning from a generic and public emergency management context to a hospital and healthcare setting. Emergencies affect hospitals differently and require unique approaches to EM efforts. Hospitals and healthcare facilities also experience very specific emergencies of their own. This speaker series aims to address some of these topics through knowledge transferring and sharing and to inform professionals in the DEM field who are working in these settings and those who are transitioning to the healthcare field or studying DEM from a healthcare context.
