FYI: A Unique Opportunity to Prepare for the Unthinkable

If you are a South Carolina healthcare professional, or knows someone who is, the following may be of interest...

A collaboration of many partners in South Carolina, The Disaster Preparedness and Response Training Network (DPRT), addresses the training needs of practicing healthcare professionals for bioterrorism and public health emergency event recognition and response.

Emergency preparedness and response issues include all forms of terrorism, natural disasters and tragic accidents. The goal of this program is to equip the health care workforce with the knowledge, skills, abilities and core competencies to recognize indications of a terrorist event; meet the acute care needs of patients, including pediatric and other vulnerable populations; participate in a coordinated, multidisciplinary response to emergencies; and rapidly and effectively alert the public health system if such an event was to occur.

Originally funded in 2003, the Disaster Preparedness and Response Training Network was refunded in 2005 through a $3.8 million, three-year grant from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR). Since 2008, the Network has continued to offer courses to healthcare professionals and institutions across the state on a discounted fee for service basis. Learn more about avalable courses here.
