About this Event

This event is being held in partnership between MNCHA and the Maryland Department of Health Office of Preparedness and Response as part of MNCHA’s Home Care Emergency Preparedness project. This free training is intended to help members of MNCHA’s Emergency Preparedness Network prepare to meet new emergency preparedness requirements for Medicare and Medicaid and Participating Providers.

Use of Incident Command System/Consensus Team During an Event

Course Overview: 

The Incident Command System provides a strong comprehensive team approach for responding to all types of event but especially for situations such the one we are currently experiencing, the COVID-19 pandemic. Utilizing a response team gives clear direction on roles and responsibilities. But what we have learned during this pandemic, is that during an unprecedented emergency with a brand new landscape, that decision making may require a consensus team approach as well. This session will focus on developing the teams and the importance to the care delivery system of the home care and hospice industry.

Course Objectives:
At the completion of this course, you should be able to:
  • Explain the principles and basic structure of the Incident Command System (ICS).
  • Describe the ICS functional areas and the roles of the Incident Commander and Command Staff.
  • Define consensus teams and importance during patient care in a pandemic.
  • Identify how NIMS management characteristics apply to ICS for a variety of roles and discipline areas.
