A.J. Heightman, MPA, EMT-P | | Friday, April 20, 2012


JEMS Editor-in-Chief A.J. Heightman, MPA, EMT-P, will be part of the faculty at the 2012 Integrated Medical, Public Health, Preparedness and Response Training Summit sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) May 21–25 at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tenn.

The ITS training summit brings together HHS partners, including the National Disaster Medical System, the Medical Reserve Corps, the Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals and the U.S. Public Health Service. The Integrated Training Summit is cosponsored by the Chesapeake Health Education Program Inc.

The ITS Conference permits coordination, collaboration and interaction among the target audience—the leaders and members of these preparedness and response partner organizations. The ITS Summit is designed to enhance the knowledge, skills and abilities of participants, which in turn improves their capability to deliver public health and medical care services during disasters of any origin.

Heightman and other faculty members will present on key focus areas: mass casualty incident (MCI) management, healthcare systems, leadership, public health, resource management and patient movement, and response integration/operational medicine.

Heightman will present a two-day workshop on MCI management that will focus on how to manage and/or function cooperatively at actual, or potential, MCIs. He will zero in on the roles and responsibilities of each key command officer and participating agency at MCIs. His workshop will emphasize procedures and techniques that can be implemented easily and inexpensively to expedite patient care, identification, removal and distribution from any size scene.

This ITS conference offers attendees a great opportunity to network with expert faculty members and fellow participants, many of whom are the nation’s leaders in the area of public health emergencies. It will provide insight into the latest information available in the area of emergency response and coordination.
