This course is a guide for local health officials and their partners in the local public health system to coordinate plans to provide mass distribution of pharmaceuticals for the jurisdiction as they relate to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) Program. The purpose of this course is to enhance a jurisdiction’s preparedness and emergency response efforts by developing (or revising) a plan addressing an all-hazards approach towards mass prophylaxis. The course is delivered by two public health professionals and consists of a combination of lectures, small group activities and an exercise.
The first day of training focuses on the community plan and how to achieve CDC’s 48-hour standard for mass prophylaxis. The second day of training focuses on Point of Dispensation site preparedness. The course material is applicable to pandemic influenza, bioterrorism and epidemic preparedness. Participants also receive a mass prophylaxis planning “tool box.”
This training program brings together essential personnel from within a jurisdiction who would be required to manage a Mass Prophylaxis Program or staff a Mass Prophylaxis Clinic in response to a bioterrorist incident, pandemic influenza catastrophe, or other public health emergency in their community. Participants represent public health, health care services, law enforcement, emergency medical services, emergency planning, emergency communications and volunteer management.
