CBRNE Training

The CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive Agents) Training course focuses on the various mass casualty hazards/threats that may impact healthcare delivery and the appropriate planning and training initiatives that need to be undertaken in order to make hospital staff and leadership more resilient during a crisis.

Under normal operations, hospitals are viewed primarily as providers of patient care. During large scale disasters, the perceived role of the hospital quickly expands beyond the provider of healthcare to the provider of safe refuge, direction, and support to impacted individuals. If the disaster event impedes the healthcare system’s ability to provide routine medical care, then the hospital becomes the primary source for diagnosis, treatment, and follow up for both physical and psychological care. This expanding role adds a new dimension and many new issues to preparedness planning for hospitals.

Incidents involving CBRNE agents are examples of events that can produce mass casualties. Each threat, regardless of its etiology or intent, poses unique challenges that need to be considered and understood. The purpose of this course is not to address all of the possible agents, scenarios, or emergency-related medical care that may be required by the hospital. Rather, the course focuses on the unique aspects of a CBRNE event involving mass casualties for which the hospital may not be generally trained, equipped or prepared.
