2013 Healthcare Emergency Management Conference

The overarching goal of the annual Healthcare Emergency Management Conference is to better prepare hospital and non-hospital response partners in planning, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made disasters that impact the delivery of health care in a community or impact the environment of care for responders.  The focus of the 2013 conference is trauma management for rural EMS and community hospitals.  The goal of the conference is to enhance knowledge in the management of multi-injured patients and to understand the importance of working as a team of professionals in caring for patients with life-threatening traumatic injuries in the rural EMS setting and community hospitals.  Relevant information and stimulated discussions will focus on best practices in the management of trauma/disaster patients.
