Case study: HOPE, a pivotal program to Nepal’s future in emergency medicine

In Nepal, the implementation of the HOPE program has been pivotal in the development of emergency planning in hospitals. According to Dr. Pradeep, before HOPE implementation in 2004, only two hospitals − including Tribhuvan Teaching Hospital − had emergency plans. The disaster management plans were comparatively poor and not well developed. Since 2004, approximately two HOPE courses have been conducted each year and eleven hospitals now have a disaster plan. 
 
HOPE graduates are able to design facility specific plans to maximize their ability to manage emergency situations. The course includes but is not limited to instruction in hospital emergency incident command systems, hospital disaster planning, hospital evacuation, and  management of the deceased.
