Planning for Pandemics: Crunching the Numbers on H1N1
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 1:00:00 PM CDT - 2:00:00 PM CDT
Planning for the Next Pandemic: Crunching the Numbers on H1N1 This webinar will focus on the findings from a recent retrospective study that explored surge experienced in hospitals during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. The study, requested by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was a collaborative effort involving the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Office of the HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and academic experts. Findings that will be discussed in the webinar include: • Magnitude of H1N1 surge in U.S. hospitals and emergency departments • Impact of H1N1 on surge on in-hospital quality • Characteristics of hospitals associated with surge These topics, combined with other findings, will highlight the implications of pandemics on hospital preparedness. These findings will also help prepare public health and healthcare facilities to better predict, plan for and respond to future pandemics.
