Hospitals in the Abu Dhabi Emirate are taking bold steps forward in preparing their staff members for all types of crises through a new, comprehensive training program. Alliance Solutions Group (ASG) was invited to design, develop and deliver several courses around the Emirate to enhance medical capacity and capability to respond to a crisis. The cutting-edge program developed by ASG is being delivered to over a thousand medical providers, emergency planners, administrators and senior leaders.
The unique program operationalizes the Hospital Incident Command System and trains emergency planners on a risk-based approach for conducting Hazard Vulnerability Assessments and realistic drills. The team of expert instructors from ASG has delivered similar programs for hospitals in over a dozen countries including the United States but Abu Dhabi is the first city to sponsor such a robust training program for so many hospitals. This standardized approach will ensure interoperability within the health system and enhance resiliency within the health sector.
“The student feedback and engagement in the classroom has been superb. Participants have really resonated with our unique approach to training,” stated Bob Campbell, CEO. “We hope that they will never need this training, but if they do, we are confident that they will be more than capable of implementing a successful response and recovery.”
