Pandemic Influenza Pediatric Office Plan Template: Product of a Pediatric Healthcare Response to Pandemic H1N1 Influenza Stakeholder Meeting [open pdf - 287KB]
"This Pandemic Influenza Pediatric Office Plan Template is a planning tool developed by pediatric stakeholders that is intended to assist pediatric medical offices that have no pandemic influenza plan in place, but may experience an increase in patient calls/visits or workload due to pandemic influenza. The suggestions and samples contained within this document were collected from a team of pediatric experts during a stakeholder meeting in September 2009. The content of this tool is not meant to be exhaustive or replace existing guidance. It is designed to be tailored by your office planning team to the needs of your practice to identify and plan for potential modifications to your current decision making process. In addition, this tool can also be adapted both for use during pandemic spread of a novel respiratory virus and as a planning tool for future pandemic respiratory virus events. Please note that the current tool references many links or tools developed for Pandemic 2009 H1N1 Influenza. Should this tool be adapted for specific respiratory events, you may wish to update some of the links to reflect the latest clinical and epidemiologic information."
