In this audioconference, disaster preparedness hinges on:
What Is an Audioconference?
Transcending day-to-day competitive interactions of hospitals and fostering collaboration to ensure that casualties of a mass incident receive high quality care at the most appropriate facility have been recommended by the Institute of Medicine. Additionally, the committment to evidence-based processes, scientifically founded benchmarks and objective standards called for in the law under the National Health Security Strategy will ensure consistency in the preparedness efforts. Since the IOM recommended a lead agency within HHS for emergency care, unity of effort for emergency care research and greater regionalized approaches across our nation, what has been the accountability and coordination of local, state and federal entities?
This audioconference will examine how to leverage and integrate disaster plans with day-to-day systems and processes.
It is a live event that includes session handouts, an interactive question and answer period, and access for an unlimited number of participants at each call-in site. However, only one site can be offered per registration. It is impermissible for an organization to purchase one registration and to operate multiple sites through an internal telephone system. During the live Audioconference participants will be able to ask questions and make comments. The Audioconference faculty has agreed to take follow-up questions via email. Audioconferences are simple, accessible, cost effective and reach a broad audience locally.
