HKJC ILCM Updates

Curriculum Development Workshop
Participated by about 30 faculties from various specialties and healthcare professionals, the newly initiated Curriculum Development Workshop was successfully run on 16 and 17 October 2017. Despite the condensed curriculum from 3-day to 2-day Workshop on account of the typhoon, the expertise from Masstricht University, The Netherlands had precisely and concisely shared their professional knowledge with the participants, broadening the horizons in this domain. The Workshop was welcomed and considered as a rewarding event.

INTAKE STILL IN PROGRESS! HKJCDPRI Overseas Training Fellowship for Emergency Medicine (EM) / Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Annual Conference on Disaster Preparedness and Response (ACDPR) 2018: Emerging Challenges & Opportunities Ahead

Date: 13 January 2018 (Saturday)
Location: Hong Kong Academy of Medicine

Organised by Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), and supported by (in alphabetical order):

  • Ambulance Service Institute (Hong Kong Branch)
  • Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response of The Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • Hong Kong Association of Conflict and Catastrophe Medicine
  • Hong Kong College of Community Medicine
  • Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine
  • Hong Kong Disaster Medicine Association
  • Hong Kong Emergency Nurses Association
  • Hong Kong Society for Emergency Medicine and Surgery
  • Hong Kong Red Cross
  • Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of The University of Hong Kong


The main theme of the first (2015) and second (2016) ACDPR were “From Community to Emergency Room” with a focus on emergency medicine and “Building a Resilient Health System” with the focus on community medicine respectively. The two conferences successfully attracted over 600 participants from a wide range of related disciplines.

The third ACDPR will continue the momentum into a more practical and sustained effort from key actors of disaster preparedness and response in Hong Kong. While the first two conferences had raised the interest of targeted emergency institutions with a broad scope of themes, in light of recent major incidents in Hong Kong and overseas, such as the MTR firebomb attack, Lamma ferry disaster, terror attack in Manchester Arena, Champs Elysees attack in Paris, etc., we aspire that subsequent conferences can bring in ideas on practical solutions to emerging specific disaster risks for a metropolitan city like Hong Kong.

For more information, please email to hkjcdpri@hkam.org.hk; and keep track of conference updates on http://acdpr.hkjcdpri.org.hk/ (to be launched in December)
