Pandemic planning for medical practices

An influenza pandemic presents unique challenges for the delivery of health care, with case numbers likely to seriously exceed the capacity and capability of our systems to cope in conventional ways.

Physicians will be on the front lines of response, so take time now to prepare to protect yourself, your family, your staff and practice and your patients. >

Develop a preparedness plan to ensure your practice can respond in a coherent, effective and coordinated way to maintain service continuity. This planning will also help you respond to other communicable disease situations.

Identify someone to coordinate pandemic influenza planning for your office.

Remember to update your plan and procedures annually, or after each wave of pandemic influenza.
