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.
