While traditional MIMMS teaches a structured approach to responding at the scene of mass casualty incidents, HMIMMS focusses on the delivery of care in the hospital environment.

The 2 day course explores the priorities and responsibilities of clinical and administrative responders facing a mass casualty incident in their hospital. An all-hazards approach is adopted while special incidents such as burns and chemical hazards are also covered. The concept of the collapsible hierarchy is introduced as a fundamental concept in the hospital based response.

The format includes:

  • Lectures
  • Small group workshops
  • Novel interactive tabletop sessions which simulate the challenges facing responders during the phases of patient reception, definitive care and recovery.

This course is aimed at personnel who would be involved in managing a major incident in the hospital. This can be clinical or non-clinical.
