This course is a combination of facilitated discussions, small‐group exercises, Human
Patient Simulator hands‐on scenarios, and traditional classroom discussions. Exercises are
conducted in a CBRNE scenario using both adult and pediatric Human Patient Simulators to
reinforce classroom lectures and interaction.
This course promotes critical thinking skills while utilizing the RAPID‐Care concept. The
multi‐discipline make‐up of the participants helps to strengthen information sharing,
communications, and medical surge capabilities.
