We will continue to offer a full range of modules for the upcoming academic year 2020/2021, however due to Covid-19 social distancing measures on campus attendance will be limited. There is minimal scheduled fact-to-face time and when practical skills teaching is a necessity this will continue with appropriate safety measures in place. The mode of delivery for each module can be viewed by accessing the “attendance dates” for each module. There is a possibility that the government advice on social distancing may change in the future and could restrict access to the campus; plans have been put into place and we expect to be able to continue to deliver all modules of the programme in such an eventuality.
This module is designed to enable operational practitioners to explore a range of topics relating to emergency preparedness, resilience and mass casualty management, encountered in the pre-hospital and secondary care settings.
The module aims to provide the practitioners with a strategic insight and understanding of the underpinning theory, current national legislation and contractual requirements in relation to emergency preparedness and mass casualty management.
Who is this module for?
Students should be registered healthcare practitioners with experience of working in an emergency or acute setting. They should also normally be working in an environment that would be required to respond in the event of a mass casualty incident and are able to gain the skills and competencies required to complete the module.
