International Medical Crisis Response Alliance (IMCRA):
Providing Educational Resources to Healthcare Professionals for Medical Crises & Natural Disasters
We are a UN-affiliated nonprofit,
formed by and for medical professionals. We strive to fill critical gaps during global crises through the use of an innovative and comprehensive educational telemedicine platform that enables under-equipped medical professionals working with vulnerable populations.
Community Cyberspace:PTSD & TBI Care
Our Community Cyberspace project will provide expert psychosocial training to first-line providers (family members, clergymen, primary care physicians) so that they can best help Veterans living with PTSD. These providers will have 24/7 access to IMCRA resources developed by the very best practitioners of post-traumatic psychology. Our system allows for complete anonymity and is available in multiple languages.
Native Language Medicine: Syria
Over 4,000,000 persons are now in squalid refugee camps and 800,000 more have moved into a Europe which is increasingly reluctant and incapable of handling their medical and psychological needs. IMCRA offers a unique and effective solution by providing free access to the world's greatest concentration of Arabic and Urdu-speaking specialists in medicine, psychology and the psychosocial sciences outside of the Middle East.
Post-Earthquake: Long-Term Issues
On July 31, 2016, IMCRA held its 4th major colloquium/workshop in Japan titled,"The Long-Term Caregiver Experience: Patients, Providers, Pragmatics". The need for this event became especially pressing after the Kumamoto earthquake. Because there is still little easily-accessible practice data on the long-term medical/psychological pitfalls of disaster recovery we have begun to update our professional guide modules for families and healthcare providers in both regions of Japan
The Latest at IMCRA
On July 31, 2016, the International Medical Crisis Response Alliance held its 4th Colloquium in Sendai, Japan. We had a strong showing of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals looking to contribute what they have learned in the five years since the tsunami of 3-11-11. Our event received extensive coverage from Japan’s #1 TV news station, NHK World. Our next and final step is to compile the information gathered from the two onsite workshops into a Conference Proceedings for the global peer-reviewed medical literature.
