Webinar Title: Mass Casualty Incident Triage & then Some!

The decisions to sort, assess, treat, and transport the many injured in one or several close locations after a sudden onset disaster is a challenge to balance resources in an ethical manner. The science is evolving to create an ideal system where there are basic fundamentals to concentrate when working with the actors involved to reach a common platform in context to base education, exercises, and set outcomes.

The webinar presentation will consist of the following objectives:

  1. Theory:
    1. Model Uniform Core Criteria “MUCC”
    2. Review of (most) Mass Casualty Triage Systems
  2. Science:
    1. Exercise Design and Evaluation
    2. Outcome Studies
  3. Practical:
    1. Planning Process
    2. Exercise Design and Evaluation
    3. Special Situation
