ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Training: Simulation Exercise   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "To support countries' preparedness effort on the COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019] outbreak, WHO`s [World Health Organization's] Department of Health Security and Preparedness has developed a generic COVID-19 tabletop exercise package. The exercise aims to examine and strengthen existing plans, procedures and capabilities to manage an imported case of 2019-nCov [Coronavirus Disease 2019] and targets the health authorities at the national level. The simulation package consists of different elements including: [1] A participants' guide and a facilitators' guide to explain what is expected from the different people involved in the preparation and running of the exercise. [2] A PowerPoint presentation to support the facilitation of the exercise and its subsequent debriefing; [3] A set of reference documents and technical guidance on 2019-nCov. The package highlights clearly where some minor adaptions are needed to make the simulation country-specific and more relevant to the participants."
