Advanced Disaster Medical Response (ADMR)
||Advanced Disaster Medical Response (ADMR)
||Disasters follow no rules. Traditionally, medical providers have held the erroneous belief that all disasters are different, especially those involving terrorism. In reality, all disasters, regardless of etiology, have similar medical and public health consequences. A consistent medical approach to disasters, based on an understanding of their common features and the response they require, is becoming the accepted practice throughout the world. This strategy, called the Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) response, has the primary objective of reducing the mortality caused by the disaster. The accompanying manual was developed by the International Trauma and Disaster Institute (MGH). The manual includes twenty-five chapters of detailed information designed to compliment the provider course. A copy of Advanced Disaster Medical Response Manual for Providers will be provided to course participants.
||Train multidisciplinary medical personnel the basics of disaster medical response.
The Advanced Disaster Medical Response Provider Course is designed to train multidisciplinary medical response personnel in:
- The ABC’s of basic medical and public health disaster care
