Program Description:
Picture of medical staff in hospital drillMany health workforce preparedness efforts justifiably focus on core medical and nursing staff. The speaker will present ideas about how to achieve more comprehensive preparedness that may assist health care organizations through a wide range of emergencies. She will also share strategies to reach out to the community via workers, accounting for the needs and roles of support staff, promote preparedness, as well as address basic issues during disasters, such as transportation. Recent experiences from the flooding in New York will also be shared.

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the importance of involving all staff in hospital emergency planning and response
  2. Identify barriers that health care workers may experience in reporting to work during an emergency and solutions to help prevent these barriers
  3. Understand the role that personal preparedness plays in overall organizational preparedness.
