Preparing Emergency Physicians for Acute Disaster Response A Review of Current Training Opportunities in the US
Hansoti, B., Kellogg, D., Aberle S., et al. (2016). Preparing Emergency Physicians for Acute Disaster Response: A Review of Current Training Opportunities in the US. (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 31(6): 643-647.
The authors conducted a literature review to identify training opportunities for healthcare providers in the United States, and found that most were focused on emergency management, and not clinical care delivery. They state a need for a course for non-disaster trained emergency medicine physicians and trainees that is available online and incorporates a mix of educational modalities to prepare providers for acute disaster response.
