Natural disasters—such as severe storms and wildfires—and human-caused emergencies—from cyberattacks to mass shootings—have increased in frequency and intensity in recent years. And Joint Commission-accredited health care organizations are expected to engage in a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective action to ensure emergency preparedness and management.
Emergency Management Leader™—a brand-new digital newsletter from The Joint Commission—provides practical strategies to help health care organizations comply with The Joint Commission’s Emergency Management (EM) requirements. This newsletter features case studies explaining how health care organizations handle real emergencies; practical tips from Joint Commission subject matter experts and industry leaders to help maintain and support compliance; and useful tools such as tabletop exercises, drill scenarios, checklists, sample policies and plans, and after-action reports.
Intended for EM leaders, managers, and coordinators in all health care settings, Emergency Management Leader™covers a wide range of topics, including mass casualty incident response, communication during disasters, infectious disease preparedness, EM training, EM program evaluation, and more.
Emergency Management Leader™will publish bimonthly in 2024—February, April, June, August, October, and December.
