Preparing the Team, Saving the Patient
The new eDMEP is a fully online course developed by the ACS in collaboration with a select group of surgeons and subject matter experts who have experience in disaster management. The overall goals of eDMEP include preparing learners to become ready for, respond to, and recover from disasters; contribute effectively to hospital disaster readiness; and use drills to practice their hospital disaster plan. In this course, learners will have the opportunity to work through a triage scenario, practicing their skills in a low-stakes environment. Five additional scenarios will be released by the end of 2023.
