Fundamental Disaster Management

Ensure healthcare professionals are prepared to treat victims of natural or man-made mass casualty events with the Fundamental Disaster Management (FDM) course. The course arms critical care professionals with the expertise to manage the critical care response to large-scale disasters. It focuses on critically ill patients who are admitted to your hospital and is a must for clinicians who may come in contact with critically ill and/or injured patients after a mass casualty event.

The FDM course is offered in several flexible learning formats which allow institutions and individuals to select the right learning method. For institutions seeking to train healthcare providers, hosted course options are available which combine didactic lectures and in-person skill stations for a comprehensive learning experience. For individuals searching to expand their critical care knowledge, an online self-directed option is offered or individuals may purchase the textbook or locate a course hosted by another institution near them.
