Effective management of the health aspects of major incidents and disasters requires individuals who have the ability to lead and direct health organisations to prepare, respond and recover from such incidents.
Such individuals should have extensive knowledge and understanding of the principles of disaster management arrangements in place internationally, nationally and locally and the practice of disaster management. They should also possess high level skills necessary to lead health organisations before, during and after such events.

This course is ideal for people who are likely to be responsible for designing response arrangements, instructing others in those arrangements and for managing a health service strategically throughout the response and recovery phases.
