Emergency Management Planning for Mass Gatherings and Event Medicine: A Tabletop Exercise - Dr. Adam Lund, Dr. Sheila Turris

Description:

The UBC Mass Gathering Medicine Interest Group will host an interactive workshop, rather than the standard podium approach, to presenting “7 Steps to Event Medical Direction”.  In groups of 6-8, you will participate in a planning exercise for a major planned event, deploy your resources, then “play the game” to manage patients in the event medicine context.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the context for providing an onsite medical response for major planned events
  • Critically analyze common barriers and challenges associated with providing pre-hospital care in this setting
