Public Health Crisis Webinar - Influenza Pandemic Scenario

Webinar Recording, 8/31/2017 (1 hour)

Materials: Crisis Care, Pandemic Influenza

For this week, the Oregon Immunization Program highlighted: Influenza – We have the power to fight flu! In a public health crisis, healthcare resources may be overwhelmed. Hospitals and other buildings may be damaged. Healthcare workers may be killed, ill or injured. They may be caring for loved ones, or simply unable to reach their work location. At the same time, many in the community would be ill or injured and would need care. A public health crisis like this would be a great challenge to the healthcare community and the people of Oregon. To be ready, we need to plan for it now.
