Surge Management Workgroup December Report

The Surge Management Workgroup held its December call on the 8th. After introductions, members held a discussion related to the topics that workgroup members are interested in for future conversation. Participants noted that it may be beneficial to hear from subject matter experts regarding healthcare coalitions and continue to have conversations related to the connection between public health and the different levels of government.

For the remainder of the call, participants discussed the Preparedness Coordinator Training Workshop at the 2015 Preparedness Summit. For the next call, participants were encouraged to continue thinking about topics and potential speakers for the upcoming Surge Management Webinar Series. Participants were also encouraged to identify stories from the field for NACCHO’s website.
