The Surge Management workgroup held its August call on the 25th. The workgroup was tasked on the last call to bring ideas for webinar topics to this call. The workgroup is considering a webinar series of two to three presentations for the 2014-2015 program year. The top ideas around surge management that were discussed on the call include:
- Emergency credentialing
- Patient tracking
- Resource sharing during surge events (urban vs. rural)
The next steps for the workgroup are to identify possible speakers and a timeline for the webinar series. Workgroup members will form small committees to execute each webinar with NACCHO’s help.
