Registration Request: eCore Disaster Life Support (eCDLS)

The Finger Lakes Regional Training Center has made arrangements with the National Disaster Life Support Foundation (NDLSF) to offer a limited amount of prepaid registrations for the eCore Disaster Life Support ONLINE Course (eCDLS).
This course will be provided at no charge to Health Emergency Preparedness Coalition (HEPC) partners in the WR, CNY, CDR and MARO regions - while supplies last.   
(RTC grant funded slots do not cover learners in the NYC region - please contact your HPP program for similar opportunities)
The eCore Disaster Life Support® (eCDLS) online training course is a self-paced 3.5 hour competency-based, awareness-level course that introduces clinical and public health concepts and principles for the management of disasters and public health emergencies. The course incorporates the “all-hazards” approach to personal, institutional, and community disaster management through the use of two unique mnemonics, the PRE-DISASTER Paradigm™ (which applies to event mitigation and preparedness) and the DISASTER Paradigm™ (which applies to event recognition, response, and recovery).

The overarching aim of the eCDLS course is to provide participants from diverse professions, disciplines, and backgrounds with a common lexicon, vocabulary, and knowledge in disaster-related medicine and public health that can be reinforced and expanded in the BDLS® and ADLS® courses.

The eCDLS course is aimed at a broad range of audience categories, including medical first responders, healthcare professionals, health service providers, public health workers, and health support personnel.

Upon completion of the eCDLS course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the all-hazards approach to disaster mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
• Discuss essential components of federal, state, regional, and community disaster health systems, including the role of the public and private health sectors.
• Describe the elements of the PRE-DISASTER Paradigm and their application to the management of disasters and public health emergencies.
• Describe actions that can be taken to enhance personal preparedness and resilience for disasters and public health emergencies.
• Identify legal and ethical issues that impact disaster mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery, including the basic legal framework for public health.
• Describe the elements of the DISASTER Paradigm and their application for the management of disasters and public health emergencies.
