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.
