Using Disaster Response Skills to Improve Collaborative Practice
Lessons Learned through “Disaster 101” Immersion Experiences
August 10, 2012
Madden’s on Gull Lake, Brainerd, MN
Emergency preparedness and health care professionals are both essential in effective response when crises strike in our communities. Yet, each profession trains separately and makes assumptions about the capabilities and limitations of the other. This workshop will provide participants with concrete communication and teamwork skills that improve daily performance, as well as response strategies in a crisis situation. Presenters will lead participants in a hands-on exercise, talk about how participation in a multi-year emergency preparedness teamwork study (called “Disaster 101”) has led to a broader appreciation of our professional cultures of expertise, and show how the research results are directly relevant to clinical education and our daily practice.
