The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO), recently concluded the second phase of the Mass Casualty Management (MCM) training program. The training is part of the three-year Sport for Health partnership between MOPH and WHO, in collaboration with FIFA and the Qatar Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC).
The initial phase of the innovative program started in March 2022 by training Hamad Medical Corporation's emergency department staff and accrediting a number of local health providers as MCM trainers, while the second phase involved healthcare providers working in government, semi-government, primary health centers, and private hospitals.
The training focused on equipping those teams with the best clinical and administrative practices for managing patients in the critical initial 30 to 45 minutes following an incident, in which there have been many casualties. The training also included interactive discussions, workshops, lectures, and tabletop exercises simulating MCM.
