New courses in Disaster and Terror Medicine
Is your hospital, health service or community prepared for the unfortunate event of a disaster or terror incident? Equip yourself with our new courses.
Disasters and terror events are taking place with increasing frequency across the globe. In Melbourne, Australia we have experienced a number of natural disasters associated with bushfires, thunderstorm asthma, COVID-19 and terror events such as the Bourke Street Mall attack, all within a three-year period.
Designed and developed by the Department of Integrated Critical Care, this new course is delivered mostly online with two face-to-face intensives, and will next be offered in Terms 1 and 2, 2022.
We are also developing two further subjects to be offered in Terms 3 and 4, 2022, comprising a Graduate Certificate.
Who is this program for?
Disaster and Terror Medicine and Health Management is a system-orientated specialty that intersects clinical medicine and a diverse group of responding agencies. The course is relevant to critical care clinicians (including doctors, nurses, clinical leaders); emergency services (including paramedics and first responders); hospital administrators; government and policy makers; social workers; and the military.
