Course Description

MGT-901 - Healthcare Leadership for All Hazards Incidents (HCL) (Program RR+ICE)

This course code has changed.  It was previouly: CDP-007-06

The HCL course is a four-day, 32-hour course that provides healthcare responders an opportunity to address realistic decisions regarding an all-hazards disaster in a facility-based exercise. The course is a combination of lecture and exercises, providing responders a foundation on which to make critical decisions during the fast-paced final exercise. The course includes lectures on decision making in a disaster; ICS, NIMS, and HICS in a healthcare facility; IEMS; PPE and decontamination procedures in a healthcare facility; and media/public information.

The target audience for this course includes the following healthcare professionals:
  • Hospital Executive Group - Senior executive(s) who has/have ultimate legal and fiduciary overall responsibilities for the institution (e.g. Hospital Chief Executive Officer; Hospital Chief Operating Officer; Hospital Executive Vice President; Hospital Chief Medical Officer; Hospital Chief Financial Officer; Hospital Nurse Executive; and/or Hospital Emergency Preparedness Coordinator).
  • Patient Services Group - Senior patient care services leadership (non-physician) responsible for organizing and delivering patient care services and resources; maintains patient tracking system; assures the treatment of in-patients and manages the in-patient care areas; controls discharge procedures (e.g. Chief Nursing Officer; Nurse Manager/Supervisor for patient care; Nurse House Supervisor; and/or Assistant Vice-President, Nursing).
  • Emergency Department Group - Person responsible for overall clinical and administrative management of the emergency department resources (e.g. Emergency Department Manager; Emergency Department Administrator; Emergency Department Physician; and/or Emergency Department Nurse).
  • Physical Plan Operations Group - Person responsible for the physical plan and its environment (e.g. Plant Chief Officer (preferred); Security Chief; and/or Safety Officer).
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Group - Person responsible for authorizing policy and/or participates in the formation of policy that determines the response of EMS resources to multiple casualty incidents.  This person would serve as the EMS operations officer directing EMS response during an incident.  If a person with these responsibilities is not available, then a person who directs the operations of the EMS communications component of a community public safety response system (9-1-1 system) may be substituted (e.g. Emergency Medical Services Administrator; and/or EMS 9-1-1 Administrator/Communication Chief).
  • Public Health Group - Person responsible for authorizing policy and/or participates in the formation of policy that determines the public health response to a WMD incident (e.g. Public Health Director (city/county/State); Public Health Officer (city/county/State); and/or epidemiologist).

Preference for acceptance will be given to those healthcare systems that can provide one individual from each of the above groups for any given course offering.  The course is designed to train teams of individuals from a single healthcare system.  It is approved for 30 nursing continuing medical education (CME) units and 21.25 physician CME units.
