NACCHO will be conducting key informant interviews in July and early August to develop an understanding of healthcare coalition (HCC) response roles at the local level. Local health department (LHD) staff who are active members of an HCC are strongly encouraged to participate. The information collected during these interviews will be used to support an evidence-based approach to addressing response needs of HCCs in the future and to develop a document that will highlight examples of HCC response, identify HCC roles and responsibilities related to response, and relate ongoing HCC preparedness activities to potential response activities.
Interviews are expected to last 30-45 minutes, will be held virtually over conference call, and interview questions will be provided in advance of the call. Interested LHD staff and/or other agency representatives that lead HCC in their community are asked to contact Raymond Puerini at firstname.lastname@example.org and Danielle Chatelain at email@example.com by July 7, 2017.
