Recovery Planning for Public Health and Healthcare Organizations

When disaster hits, we immediately activate response plans to meet the needs of the community. From the first day, we also need to take steps to ensure we can “build back better.” This is the challenge in recovery planning. How can we re-establish vital services to the community while also improving organizational and community resilience? In the absence of pre-disaster recovery planning to establish partnerships, roles, and key priorities, public health and healthcare recovery can be slow to start, and limited in impact.

What you Will Learn: 
This course provides an overview of the recovery planning process, and highlights key planning activities for public health, emergency medical services, hospitals, community health, long-term care, and other healthcare institutions. Participants will leave with foundational information and best practices in recovery planning to enhance their recovery plans and improve essential partnerships in recovery planning.
