NATIONAL PLANNING SCENARIO
- Disease outbreak: pandemic flu
- Describe the role of PPE in self-protection.
- Describe one's professional roles, functions and responsibilities in CBRNE and other public health situations (i.e. one's personal role in this system/NIMS/NRP).
- Define the Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS), National Response Plan (NRP) and describe their general structure and components. (ICS 100 or equivalent)
- Describe the concept of an all-hazards approach to preparedness.
- Define medical triage and discuss situations where its use is appropriate.
- Identify suspect and confirmed disease, conditions and events that are legally reportable, how to report and one's role.
- Describe one's role in the local, community and statewide public health emergency response system.
- Describe/list common psychological responses to a disaster (i.e. confusion, fear, grief).
- Value self-care and stress management.
- Recognize reactions common to caregivers (self and colleagues) during a public health emergency/CBRNE event.
- Describe and analyze ethical conflicts between professional and personal responsibilities.
- Appropriately implement components of the preparedness plan in a timely fashion.
- Critique and evaluate components of the response plan, including one's individual role.
- Describe the signs and symptoms of individual cases and the characteristics of epidemics that can help one distinguish between a potential bioterrorism attack and natural disease phenomena (i.e. signs/symptoms, number of case, temporality, etc).
