Hospital Emergency Operations Response: Mass Casualty Response Objectives
Hospital Emergency Operations Response: Mass Casualty Response Objectives At the conclusion of this presentation the participant will be able to: Facilitate discussion regarding disaster or medical emergency response operations Review the epidemiology of disasters Define the role of Public Health in a disaster Review the phases of disaster response Define the role of hospitals in disaster response Disaster Disaster Crisis situation causing wide spread damage which exceeds ability to recover
