Learning Outcomes

Kineo’s Healthcare Emergency Preparedness course is a short, behaviourally-focused course, designed so that when the worst happens, healthcare workers can respond quickly and appropriately.

Throughout the training, learners are provided with clear training regarding each colour code – what it’s called for, when it should be called, and how to respond to it.  Each colour code is reinforced with clear, visual styling. Case studies and videos are used to ensure engagement throughout. 

The course also contains filtered learner-specific content regarding Code Grey. Code Grey is a healthcare emergency code used in Victoria, for a threatening incident that can be handled internally – without referring to exterior Emergency Services.  

This course will give you an understanding of: 

  • which colour codes are used for which specific emergencies 
  • when to initiate an emergency code, and 
  • how to behave in specific emergency situations.
