Hope is Not a Plan – Preparing for Public Health Emergencies.

Dr. Hewlett presented her talk “Hope is Not a Plan” for the SHEA/CDC Outbreak Response Training Workshop(ORTP) in Philadelphia in June. The workshop was geared towards Hospital Epidemiologists and focused on hospital preparedness for public health emergencies. Dr. Hewlett specifically spoke on key steps in preparing for a high-consequence pathogen infection, travel and screening tools for locations and risks, multi-drug resistant organisms and the facilitators/barriers for preparing for emerging infections.

If you would like to learn more, there is addition online training available and listings for future workshops here.
