Workshop: Strengthening Academic-Practice Partnerships: A Toolkit for Implementing Population Focused Disaster and Chronic Disease Preparedness
This workshop is designed for healthcare educators and primary care providers interested in disaster and public health preparedness from a population health perspective. Participants will leave with access to a toolkit, curriculum (that will include updates as they are made), and three ready to use modules. All information will be provided in a format that you can link to and use. We are also committed to giving it to you in a format that you can edit for your purposes. Everything will remain in the commons for free use.
Partner-centered approaches to disaster preparedness and response aim to build communities and common understanding before a disaster occurs. The workshop will include:
- Collaboration of public and private partnerships
- Disaster/Public Health Preparedness Curriculum
- Overview of three modules (Zika, Flint Water Crisis, 9/11 Long-term health conditions)
- Simulated Exercise
- Audience Feedback Session
The workshop is free and open to all healthcare professionals, educators, and students. Food is not provided, but box lunches can be purchased onsite for $7.
