Are We Prepared? Lessons Learned From the Last Decade of Preparedness Education and a Look to the Future (No Audio)

In 2000, continuing education and training for the public health workforce related to preparing for and responding to new and emerging threats to public health were limited, at best. Today, we have a vast knowledge base of workforce development experts and training resources that have the information, skills and technologies needed to prepare our communities for an all hazards emergency.

The November/December 2010 PHR Special Supplement on Public Health Preparedness focuses on using the impacts and lessons learned of the Centers for Public Health Preparedness to inform education and training efforts moving forward. Preparedness training experts are being used to inform future education and training efforts.

During this webcast, the guest editors for the supplement, Mr. Jack Thompson (University of Washington), Dr. Edward Baker (University of North Carolina) and Dr. Bernard Turnock (University of Illinois Chicago), will discuss some of the overarching issues raised in the supplement and begin to examine ways to put yesterday’s lessons to work for tomorrow in order to enhance the nation’s ability to respond to public health crises.
