Emergency Preparedness Education: Does it make Cents?

Disaster declarations in the US continue to trend in an upward fashion, averaging more than 120 declarations annually since 1996. Though disaster response is an expectation of healthcare organizations, there is a documented lack of nursing emergency preparedness knowledge. A recent study conducted at a large Midwest healthcare system documented 78% of the nursing staff had little or no familiarity with response activities related to a large scale emergency incident; and, 82% of nurses have not completed continuing education credits related to emergency preparedness and response. In collaboration with ASPR TRACIE, Spectrum Health has developed six education modules geared for nurses to address: accessing resources, communications, detection and response, ICS, isolation and quarantine, and triage. Attend this session to learn more about each of these modules, how they can help you and your staff be better prepared, and discuss the return on investment for organizations implementing a structured emergency preparedness education program for the nursing staff.
