Integrating Primary Care Providers into Community Pandemic Influenza Planning: Abbreviated Pandemic Influenza Plan Template for Primary Care Provider Offices: Guidance from Stakeholders [presentation] [open pdf - 696KB]
"The Abbreviated Pandemic Influenza Plan Template for Primary Care Provider [PCP] Offices is a planning tool developed based on input from stakeholders (PCPs, PCP office managers, hospitals, local and state public health departments, and local and state emergency management agencies) during a CDC-sponsored [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] meeting in August 2009. It is intended to assist PCPs and office managers with preparing their offices for quickly putting a plan in place to handle an increase in patient calls and visits, whether during the 2009-2010 influenza season or future influenza seasons. It provides key considerations for PCP offices and is a summary of a forthcoming planning document, the Pandemic Influenza Organizer*, which will provide greater detail on each of these sections. Offices are encouraged to use this template as a guide to develop the framework for a pandemic influenza plan, and begin to integrate the plan into their community's plan."
