Preparing For A Disaster (OPS/PAP Seminar Series)

  • Providence St Vincents

Dr. Carl Eriksson is a pediatric critical care doctor and health systems researcher at Oregon Health & Science University and Doernbecher Children's Hospital. His work focuses on improving the ability of the pediatric healthcare system to provide high-quality care to children during public health emergencies and other times of increased need.

Many pediatricians do not know how best to prepare themselves or their practices to handle a disaster. This talk and following discussion will describe Oregon's vulnerabilities to disasters, focusing on the Cascadia Subduction Zone, explain current efforts to mitigate these vulnerabilities, and what pediatricians can do (both as citizens at risk and as child health experts) to prepare for a disaster or other public health emergency.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Oregon Medical Association and the Oregon Pediatric Society. The Oregon Medical Association (OMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Oregon Medical Association designated this Lecture for a maximum of one AMA PRA Category 1.0 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
