Advanced Disaster Response Course

The first Advanced Disaster Response Course (ADRC), organised by the Disaster Medicine Subcommittee of the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine and supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), commenced in September 2016. The course was held over four days from 24 September to 3 December 2016 with daily theme of discussion, namely, “Urban Humanitarian Emergencies”, “Incident Categorisation”, “Hospital Planning and Response” and “Urban Disasters and the World”. 

32 participants enrolled for the course, including 19 doctors, 9 nurses, 2 ambulance officers and 2 hospital managers. The course helped participants to develop knowledge and skills needed to prepare health care facilities for effective response, to ensure continuous operations during and after disasters, and to recover for the better from the impacts of disasters. Interactive simulation exercises throughout the course provided an opportunity for participants to practice newly acquired skills and knowledge.
