The overarching goal of the annual Health Emergency Management Workshop is to better prepare hospital and non-hospital response partners in planning, mitigating, responding to and recovering from natural and man-made disasters that impact the delivery of health care in a community or impact the environment of care for responders. The focus of the 2015 Workshop is Trauma Management for Rural EMS And Community Hospitals (T-REACH). The goal of the workshop is to enhance knowledge in the management of multi-injured patients and to understand the importance of working as a team of professionals in caring for patients with life-threatening traumatic injuries in the rural EMS setting and community hospitals. Relevant information and stimulated discussions will focus on best practices in the management of trauma/disaster patients.

At this workshop you will:
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the New York State trauma system and the American College of Surgeons - Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT's) verification process for NYS
  • Define the "golden period" in trauma care and how transport measures (helicopter and ground transport) are an integral part of the regional trauma system
  • Recognize priorities and protocol shifts in the initial assessment, transport and management of suspected spinal injuries
  • Distinguish characteristics of the pediatric trauma patient
  • Understand preparation needed to respond to Amish or Mennonite scenes and how to interact with "Old Order" communities
  • Appreciate the impact of a natural disaster on the healthcare community through the sharing of best practices and lessons learned from Snowvember 2014
  • Identify regional trauma center resources for continued outreach opportunities
