Presentation Transcript

  1. Pandemic Influenza: Rapid Response Required Table-top Exercise

  2. Table-top Exercise • Introductions • Unfolding Scenarios • Avian Influenza Mutates • Pandemic Influenza Emerges • Pandemic Influenza Spreads • Evaluation

  3. Key Areas of Planning & Response Healthcare Surveillance Antivirals Diagnostics Vaccination Infection Control Mitigation Workforce

  4. Tabletop Exercise Goal • Identify the relationships between Public Health and healthcare providers necessary to recognize and respond to pandemic influenza and detect the first case in Alabama.

  5. Specific Objectives • Identify the joint response capabilities between Public Health and healthcare providers in 3 key response categories: • Surveillance & Epidemiology • Specimen Collection • Laboratory Procedures

  6. Issue Areas • Improve reporting and detection of pandemic influenza. • Increase ability for timely investigation and response. • Increase capacity to rapidly respond to a pandemic threat.

  7. Ground Rules • Participate in your usual daily role. • Your input may come from your own opinions and/or the policies of your facility.

  8. Expectations • No organization is fully prepared for this type of public health emergency. • Open and honest dialog and feedback are encouraged.

  9. Expectations • Participants should feel free to ask questions of one another and challenge each other’s assumptions. • No one will be singled out for what they say during the exercise. • You will act on what you learn.

  13. Unfolding Scenario 2Pandemic Influenza Emerges Late Breaking Pandemic Influenza News Video

  14. Points of Discussion • What specific tasks should Public Health and healthcare providers engage in to prepare for the outbreak before it reaches Alabama?

  15. Feedback

  17. From Detection to Management • Rapid response is critical to detect first cases of pandemic influenza. • Surveillance of cases ends. • Surveillance of fatalities begins.

  18. Evaluate Your Role in Rapid Response • What are the biggest gaps or challenges in preparedness you see resulting from this exercise? • Which problem areas should be deemed highest priority?

  19. Points of Discussion • Outline a plan for how you might begin to make improvements to your response. • What initial steps can you take?

  20. Final Comment • Thanks for your participation • Feedback will be incorporated into action plan
