PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The overarching goal of the annual Health Emergency Management Workshop is to better prepare hospital and non-hospital response partners in planning, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made disasters that impact the delivery of health care in a community or impact the environment of care for responders. The focus of the 2019 Workshop is Trauma Management for Rural EMS And Community Hospitals (T-REACH). The goal of the workshop is to enhance knowledge in the management of multi-injured patients and to understand the importance of working as a team of professionals in caring for patients with life-threatening traumatic injuries in the rural EMS setting and community hospitals. Relevant information and stimulated discussions will focus on best practices in the management of trauma/disaster patients.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

  • Discuss interventions for immediate life threatening symptoms in the adult and pediatric trauma patient
  • Identify patients who require transfer to a trauma center
  • Describe the responsibilities of the referring and receiving doctors during the transfer process

TARGET AUDIENCE

Healthcare professionals (MD/DO, PA, NP, RN and other allied medical professionals) in community hospitals (ED, Acute Floor and ICU) and EMS providers in the communities of Western, Finger Lakes and Central New York State. Health profession students are welcome to attend.
