Pilot Training: Development of a training handbook - Austria

A pilot training took place on January 20th in 2017 in Innsbruck, Austria. The aim of the pilot training was to present and discuss some formats which were planed to use in a training handbook, namely PowerPoint input, exercises based on case examples and a framework for developing checklists for emergencies. In total 17 participants took part, coming from both caregiver and emergency organisations. Input on reactions and needs of people with mental disabilities in emergencies and disasters was given. Case examples were used for group discussions. A preliminary checklist was used as a framework for a discussion on how to develop an emergency checklist based on a case example.
