Disaster Information: ASPR TRACIE Volunteer Management Topic Collection

Posted in: All Members

From the DISASTR-OUTREACH-LIB Email Discussion List:

ASPR TRACIE released its Volunteer Management Topic Collection today!

During large-scale disasters or extended health emergencies, healthcare facilities may need to augment their teams (often with volunteers) to continue to provide patient care. Protocols defining when and how volunteers will be used; how they will be identified; how they will be credentialed and assigned; and how their work will be managed and evaluated must be developed as part of an organization’s emergency response plan. The resources in this Topic Collection include guidance and strategies, targeted legal information, and planning templates to assist healthcare facilities with successfully incorporating volunteers into their disaster management plans. In addition, some key resources for professionals responsible for the day-to-day management of a public health/healthcare volunteer program are included.

Click HERE to check out all of ASPR TRACIE’s completed Topic Collections and other resources.
