Medical Preparedness and Response for Bombing Incidents

MGT348 - 16.00 Hours

Description

This course is designed for personnel from any professional background who may become part of a community response to a bombing event. This interactive, instructor-facilitated program employs case studies and research-based information designed to enhance medical preparedness for and response to blast effects. Breakout sessions address considerations and concerns specific both to medical responders and emergency planners.
 
Students are encouraged to ask questions and to create a to-do list of items they don’t have the answers to, so they have a list of tasks to address when they return to their jurisdiction.
