The Importance of Risk and Crisis Management Training in the Health Sector
The two concepts are distinct in their meaning; a crisis is a sudden event that is often public and can cause significant damage. A risk is something that may happen in the future that could cause unexpected harm or loss. Crisis management is more about managing and recovering from an unforeseeable incident.
Healthcare providers need to take this kind of training to act and react to situations involving risk factors properly. There are usual procedures like identifying hazards, whether chemical, biological, or physical, to keep their workplace safe. There are also sudden medical situations like the spread of COVID-19, where this kind of training serves to keep healthcare providers and staff safe for them to serve others.
The bottom line is it's always better to be safe than sorry, and that's the whole idea behind risk and crisis management training.
