On-Demand Education

MHA is pleased to provide a variety of educational resources to Missouri's health care facilities.

  • CMS
  • COOP
  • Civil Unrest
  • Communications
  • Life Safety
  • Decontamination Training Centers

These resources are provided through a subcontract with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, with grant funding through the ASPR Hospital Preparedness Program, Missouri Cooperative Agreement CFDA 93.889.

In December 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released a proposed rule for emergency preparedness conditions of participation. On September 8, 2016 the rule was finalized with an effective date of November 16, 2016 and an implementation date of November 16, 2017.

MHA staff will be working to review and compile a comprehensive summary of the final rule in the immediate future to include appropriate hospital guidance and technical assistance, as identified. Please check back regularly as current resources will be added.

The following webinar series has been made available to provide hospital emergency preparedness staff and other HCC members the knowledge to understand the rule and prepare for implementation. This includes but is not limited to how the rule interrelates with Missouri hospital licensing and regulations, codes and standards of the National Fire Protection Agency and requirements of deemed accrediting agencies.

The series has been divided into four parts.

In an effort to assist health care providers with developing or integrating existing plans to strengthen their organization’s continuity of operations activities, the following webinar series has been developed. The series has been divided into four parts to allow for specific focus in the areas of administration, information technology and facilities management.

Planning Considerations for Emergency Management Programs



Specific reference documents mentioned in the series are available for timely access below:

Over the past several years, HPP program funds have focused on developing the necessary plans and education to facilitate an appropriate and effective response to an armed violent intruder.

More recent events in our state and across the country have drawn special attention to incidents occurring within the community resulting in civil unrest. Even though these events are taking place outside of the hospital’s walls, their impact remains far reaching and has the potential to impact the safety of hospital staff, patients, visitors and the delivery of care. Hospitals have recognized the need to communicate with their staff, coordinate with local providers and establish medical surge and security policies for such situations.

The Missouri Hospital Association has facilitated three different webinars available to participants at no cost. The recordings will begin after you register.

These resources are provided through a subcontract with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, with grant funding through the ASPR Hospital Preparedness Program, Missouri Cooperative Agreement CFDA 93.889.
