    Overview -- Facilitator's guide -- Scenario -- Questions -- Next steps -- Conclusion

    Planning for an influenza pandemic is an ongoing process involving many individuals from many public health, healthcare, and emergency response agencies at the federal, state, and community levels. It involves continuous research on and incorporation of lessons learned from actual responses to influenza pandemics and other public health emergencies, simulated exercises and drills, and issues identified in facilitated group discussions. This Public Health Discussion Guide focuses on these group discussions. Target audience: This discussion guide is designed for a community emergency management agency and those emergency response partners who support the agency during disasters, such as public safety departments (e.g., police and fire) and private partners (e.g., American Red Cross or faith-based organizations), with the focus being on those personnel within the agency for whom pandemic influenza preparedness or response planning is a job responsibility. Focus: While the target audience for this guide is an emergency management agency and its emergency response partners, the guide focuses on healthcare delivery. In particular, this guide looks at the coordination and interaction between an emergency management agency, with the support of its emergency response partners, and healthcare agencies and providers during an influenza pandemic. Objectives: The objectives of this discussion guide are, through group discussion, to: Identify issues associated with response capabilities and resource availability of community emergency management agencies to support healthcare agencies and systems in their response to an influenza pandemic; Develop strategies to address these issues Flowing from these two objectives is a third objective, which is to incorporate identified strategies into a community emergency management agency's pandemic influenza preparedness or response plans. This objective is to be accomplished outside of the scope of this discussion guide by those who have oversight and management responsibilities for these plans.
