The course includes three prerequisite online modules, followed by 4 in-person modules that can either be delivered in a one-day session or split up individually based upon the site's needs. To achieve full certification, all online and in-person modules must be completed.
The course can be tailored to your region's clinical practice guidelines, policies, procedures and disaster plans, even geographical and site-specific logistics. Delivered by Health Emergency Management, the course is didactic and discussion based, with interactive exercises and simulations. Thanks to its mobility and expandable space, the BC Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) can provide a realistic and functional learning space that doesn't impact regular facility operations. Alternatively, the course can be delivered within your facility.
For learners that are interested in Applied Disaster Medicine and are unable to register for the in-person course, an alternative option exists that's allows for part of the course to be completed online for a reduced CME certificate (4.25 credits). However, to achieve full ADM certification through this method, the learner must enroll within an in-person course offering. In this case, the learner will be signed off on the online prerequisites as they would have already been completed.
The course is designed for nurses, physicians and administrative staff. Participant count includes a minimum of 10 and a maximum 24. It's recommended that there's a realistic blend of physician's (min. 25%) to nurses (min 50%).
