In the best of circumstances, healthcare organizations operate in a complex environment. This can be exacerbated when a community faces a local or national emergency, either natural, human-caused, or technological, that thrusts the healthcare system to the forefront of response and makes it the focus of recovery efforts.
It is critical that the local healthcare community be actively engaged in the development of comprehensive emergency preparedness plans, training, and exercises to ensure that local organizations communicate and coordinate their mutual support in service to the community.
Who are the necessary players in the community to contribute to the development of a local plan and how is this input solicited and acted upon? What lessons did organizations learn from the most recent COVID-19 pandemic in terms of coordination? These are some of the key questions that will be answered in this session.
What You Will Learn:
- How different organizations develop local emergency response plans.
- The importance of communication in disaster response.
- How the Incident Command System works.
- Evaluation components for mass immunization planning.
- How to apply concepts from learned lessons for future preparedness.
