= Continuing Education Credits
Date: Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm (Eastern Time)
Christa-Marie Singleton, MD, MPH

Division of State and Local Readiness
Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response
One of the nation's key preparedness challenges has been determining appropriate state and local public health preparedness priorities. In March 2011 CDC released the Public Health Preparedness Capabilities: National Standards for State and Local Planning to serve as national public health preparedness standards that can support public health, medical, and mental/behavioral health systems during emergency incidents. Clinicians have a vital role in helping public health departments assure the public’s health during emergency incidents. During this COCA conference call, a CDC subject matter expert will provide an overview of this National Standards document and highlight opportunities for clinician engagement.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:
- Understand CDC’s capability-based methodology for determining priorities for state/local public health preparedness and response
- Describe types of current public health preparedness activities being considered between public health departments and clinical providers
- Identify opportunities for clinicians to develop and support a shared engagement of public health preparedness capabilities at the state or local level
