Collaboration to Enhance Disaster Outcomes
We are a community of practice dedicated to trauma and disaster preparedness and respons.
CREDO will expedite industry-wide coordination, collaboration, and cooperation on disasters and trauma safety and training by organizing a series of seminars and satellite symposia during 2022 to 2023 to discuss the global pandemic response, lessons for our recovery, and how we can build resilience to current and future health threats. The workshops will highlight the potential benefits of new digital solutions to the key priority areas of disaster and trauma prevention and management, such as the safety of patients, healthcare providers, vulnerable users, consumer products and services.
CREDO was created in 2020, originally in response to an EU Horizon call to Improve Trauma Outcomes for Patients, Families, Responders, and Communities. The CREDO Consortium is comprised of leaders and experts, patients and patient organizations, clinicians, researchers, educators, policymakers, and industry representatives from European and international health systems, academia, non-governmental organizations, and related industries. CREDO will enhance the quality of care and safety – for patients and responders – in emergencies, disaster and traumatic events, and recovery by developing a harmonized framework for disaster care and risk management that:
Allows stakeholders to more effectively assess dynamic multi-hazard risks,
delivers new training in leadership and team-based care to best protect the physical and emotional wellness of healthcare workers across multiple hazards, sectors, scales, and goals, and,
Provides adaptive learning, precision diagnostics, human factor shaping resilience, and patient and user-based design approaches.
