About the course
Leading in times of disruption is a challenge that many physicians would rather sidestep. However, regardless of the type or cause, experiences tell us that every crisis must go through the following phases: (1) mitigation, (2) preparedness, (3) response, and (4) recovery. The first stage in planning for emergency and disaster events is to assess the practice’s vulnerability. Planning and preparedness is the next stage, followed by drafting policies and procedures to implement the plan. Finally, a system for returning to pre-crisis operations should materialize. This one-day session addresses the facets of crisis management that are essential for continuity of practice operations.
- Recognize the four phases of crisis and identify the characteristics of each
- Assess vulnerabilities within your organization and prepare for potential crises
- Draft policies and procedures for handling future crisis situations
- Explore common and innovative strategies for crisis mitigation
- Build a strategy for Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)
