The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness and the New Jersey Department of Health will be sponsoring a two-day training titled: "Medical Countermeasures: Point Of Dispensing (POD), Planning And Response" (MGT-319). The training will be instructed by the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC).
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
This training course is to enhance jurisdiction preparedness and emergency response efforts by providing the knowledge of how to exercise and revise a plan that utilizes an all-hazards, whole community approach toward a medical countermeasures event. Assists with coordination of planning, training, and responding to a Medical Countermeasure (MCM) response for a public health incident. This course responds directly to the National Preparedness Goal; as it applies to delivery of medical countermeasures to exposed populations.
This course is a guide for local health officials and their partners to coordinate plans to provide mass distribution of medical countermeasures in response to a large-scale public health incident. Sixteen continuing elective units (CEUs) will be awarded to New Jersey Emergency Medical Technicians. Continuing education credit is approved by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), an accredited approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
Confirmation messages will be sent no later than one week from the scheduled delivery date. If you have any questions regarding this training, please email Michael Urbanski at MUrbanski@njohsp.gov.
