Whilst traditional MIMMS teaches a structured approach to responding to a mass casualty at the incident site, Hospital MIMMS (HMIMMS) focusses on the delivery of care in the hospital environment, and is aimed at the hospital staff responsible for planning, training and managing a major incident.
This 2 day course explores the priorities and responsibilities of hospital clinical and administrative responders facing a mass casualty incident. An all-hazard approach is adopted while special incidents such as burns and chemical hazards are also discussed. The concept of the scaleable hierarchy is introduced as a fundamental concept in the hospital based response.
The course comprises of online pre-course modular components, lectures, workshops and novel interactive table top exercises, simulating the challenges facing responders during the phases of reception, definitive care and recovery.
Course objectives include:
- Type and incidence of major incidents and the need for an effective response and management planning.
- Understand and able to implement and follow the seven principles encapsulated in the CSCATTT approach to successfully managing a major incident.
- Understand the need for major incident training, focusing on those aspects of the plan which do not occur in day-to-day practice, i.e., command, control, communication and mass casualty triage.
- Able to deliver the medical support needed for major incidents in the hospital setting using the concept of collapsible hierarchies.
This course is aimed at both clinical and non-clinical personnel who would be involved in managing a major incident in the hospital.
