Topic Collection: Ambulatory Care and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) [website]   [open html - 663KB]

"During disasters or public health emergencies clinics, community health centers, mental/behavioral healthcare providers, federally-qualified health centers, private physician offices, ambulatory procedure centers, and other outpatient facilities play a critical part in the response by addressing the needs of patients with both acute and chronic conditions. Failures, damage, or compromise to ambulatory care operations can dramatically increase the stress on the emergency medical services and hospital systems and also result in exacerbations of chronic medical conditions that add additional healthcare burdens. The resources in this Topic Collection can help emergency planners in these types of facilities plan for and respond to a variety of incidents. [...] Each resource in this Topic Collection is placed into one or more of the following categories (click on the category name to be taken directly to that set of resources). Resources marked with an asterisk (*) appear in more than one category."
