December 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

HSEP Training Description:

The FEMA Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response’s Division of National Healthcare Preparedness Programs has developed a one-day, 8 hour Health Sector Emergency Preparedness (HSEP) Course. The course is designed to provide training to health care providers and suppliers in the achievement of the four core elements outlined in the September 2016 Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers Final Rule. The CDP will provide this training in coordination with interested Health Care Coalitions (HCCs). Host responsibilities would consist of providing a classroom or auditorium capable of seating the expected audience, supporting recruitment of an appropriate audience from the 17 identified providers and suppliers, and providing a point of contact to coordinate the class with the CDP. Below are some of the critical skill sets learned during this training:

a. Understand specific healthcare provider and supplier emergency preparedness requirements as outlined in the CMS Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers Rule.

b. Develop knowledge and skill in achieving relevant emergency preparedness elements for your healthcare provider or supplier type. Recognize by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), to include the advantages and disadvantages of each level.
