HICS for Executive Leadership

DQE's HICS for Executive Leadership course provides hospital leaders with a functional understanding and appreciation of healthcare all-hazards emergency management with an emphasis on incident planning, prioritization of response objectives and event leadership. This time-sensitive training focuses on three operational components of a Hospital's Emergency Management Program - the Hospital Incident Command System (HICS), the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), and the Hospital Command Center (HCC). The program concludes with a facilitated tabletop exercise.


Held at your facility, lecture, case studies, and facilitated group discussion are used to educate leadership about the practicality and functionality of the Hospital Incident Command System and how its use increases operational efficiency.
