Description:  Improving Pediatric Office Preparedness and Addressing Children's Needs in Infectious Disease Outbreaks and Disasters

Infectious disease outbreaks pose many challenges to pediatric practices.  Such outbreaks may be predictable (i.e. seasonal influenza), sudden and unexpected due to un- or under-immunized children exposed to vaccine preventable diseases and sudden and unexpected due to emerging infections.  In such situations, information overload is common and the immediate changes required in the healthcare delivery system can be challenging for doctors and patients.  In a round table, interactive format and using real examples from recent outbreaks, this session will offer insight on lessons learned and highlight steps that pediatricians can take to better prepare their practice setting for these events.
