Description:This Ebola Discussion Guide is a tool to aid planners in developing an Ebola Concept of Operations (ConOps) Plan using the Ebola ConOps Planning Template1 that was developed, with the support of several partners, by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The purpose of the guide is to
• Encourage the coordination and integration of Ebola ConOps planning among sectors in a jurisdiction as well as in neighboring jurisdictions.
• Assist participants in the discussion to gain an understanding of the processes that are working well, challenges or needs that may or may not be known by all sectors, and expectations or assumptions that may drive planning decisions.
• Identify action steps needed to develop a comprehensive, coordinated, and effective Ebola ConOps Plan or update an existing plan.
By bringing all sectors together, the full range of resources and considerations can be applied to improve a jurisdiction's capability to plan for and safely manage persons under investigation (PUIs) or patients with confirmed Ebola virus disease (Ebola). In addition, following the process may assist participants as they develop ConOps plans for other public health emergencies.
