Emergency Preparedness: Incident Management System (IMS) and Integrated Communications
Thursday, October 2, 2014
12:00–1:30 pm (est)
One of the most vital aspects of any emergency is the coordination of resources and responders. Incident Management System (IMS) supports emergency and disaster response. However, it is integrated communications that allows information to flow and enables critical decision-making to deal with disasters.
This webcast is the second in a series that will discuss preparedness methods for disaster response, and will serve as a reminder to hospitals to review their emergency plan. All hospital staff should have a basic familiarization of the hospital or health care facility’s communication plan and IMS.
Throughout this series, the Disaster Preparedness for Healthcare Facilities book will be referenced. For more information on the book or to purchase a copy, click here. The book presents how to plan for overcoming disaster/emergency situations, and how to assess the risks and readiness of a health care facility. A variety of checklist templates and leading principles for emergency preparedness are also included.
This webcast is targeted at hospital Chief Executive Officers, Chiefs of Staff, VPs of Clinical Services, Chief Human Resources Officers, Senior Administrators, Board Members, Occupational Health & Safety Administrators,
Infection Control Practitioners, Human Resources professionals, Public Relations/Communications staff, Emergency Preparedness Leads, Emergency Response Teams, Risk Managers, and Environmental Services professionals.
