The PHEP Connects webinar on December 9 at 1:00 pm ET will introduce a new CDC online tool, “Crosswalk of the Public Health Accreditation Board’s (PHAB) Standards and Measures and CDC’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Capabilities.” Participants will learn about the capabilities and accreditation standards and how they can use the new Accreditation and Preparedness Crosswalk to quickly identify direct and indirect connections between the two sets of standards.
Webinar presenters include David Dickerson from CDC’s Center for Preparedness and Response (CPR) and Liza Corso from CDC’s Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (CSTLTS). Developed collaboratively by CPR and CSTLTS, the Accreditation and Preparedness Crosswalk is intended to help public health preparedness and accreditation staff quickly recognize areas where preparedness activities, procedures, and documentation might support PHAB accreditation efforts. There are also many areas in which PHAB accreditation and quality improvement efforts may contribute to strengthening the capacity of public health departments to prepare for and respond to public health threats and emergencies.
