2012 Annual emergency preparedness conference

Meeting or Conference
Joint Commission Resources (JCR)
11-12 Apr 2012
United States of America (Arlington, VA)
Marriott Crystal Gateway 1700 Jefferson Davis Highway


Destructive, devastating, shattering -– these are only a few of the words that begin to describe the impact of the natural disasters that plagued the country in 2011. Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Management plans were tested and successfully implemented. What continues to resonate is that “the Joint Commission standards DO make a difference.” From the tornado that ravaged Joplin, Missouri to the impact of Hurricane Irene up the East coast through New York and into New England, healthcare organizations saved patients lives and provided continuity of care because they were prepared.

Attend the 8th Annual Joint Commission and Joint Commission Resources Annual Emergency Preparedness Conference and learn how Joint Commission accreditation standards provide healthcare organizations with a resilient framework to prepare for and recover from disaster. Hear the real-life responses of your peers to tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, active shooter threats, and more -- and how their emergency teams managed triage, evacuations, post-disaster recovery, and crisis care.

The conference agenda will provide those responsible for emergency management a portfolio of strategies, real life lessons learned and tools to implement upon return to their organizations.
