Report issued by the Trust for America’s Health

The “Ready or Not?” report by the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) is a publication that offers an independent evaluation of the U.S.’s public health readiness, highlighting progress and areas needing improvement.

It reviews state preparedness levels, the federal government’s role, and suggests enhancements for emergency response capabilities. The report promotes accountability in the use of taxpayer funds for health emergency readiness and recommends transitioning to a strategic, capability-focused system for effective response to health crises, including disease, disasters, and bio-terrorism threats. It also emphasizes the need for transparency to allow policymakers to accurately gauge the nation’s preparedness.

Adding resilience to emerge stronger after disasters

Disruption is now the norm, and hospitals must be prepared to respond to multiple types of disasters – sometimes running simultaneous responses or prolonged Incident Command Centers. Learn from an emergency preparedness coordinator whose hospital has opened HICSi 17 times in seven years, responding to a wide variety of disasters. During this session, you’ll learn how to engage staff and leaders in a meaningful way to build a living, relevant EM program that has the strength to be flexible, adding resilience to your team to emerge stronger after disasters.
