Emergency preparedness sessions at medical campus

By Life@TheU
Learn how to properly prepare for and react to a variety of settings, including active shooter and other high-stakes scenarios.

UHealth employees can register to attend emergency preparedness training sessions, which are a requirement of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Agency For Health Care Administration (AHCA) and The Joint Commission (TJC).

Active shooter response training is an interactive session that incorporates the latest Department of Homeland Security guidance and best practices for individual response to active shooter situations.

Annual emergency preparedness training is a foundational training that provides key emergency response information for the most common hazards we face at the University of Miami and in healthcare facilities. Additionally, the course seeks to empower attendees with highly actionable response steps that can be rapidly implemented during an emergency. Each registered participant will receive an email containing a Blackboard Live Webinar link 12 to 24 hours before the training session.
