Peruse the Pennsylvania Pandemic Flu Plan. No disaster plan is without flaws or weaknesses. Based on your knowledge of disaster mitigation and response, as well as your knowledge of public health, design a tool which could be used by the PA DOH (Department of Health) as an instructional guide to their county offices on how they plan to handle an influenza pandemic. As part of this guide, present at least 5 weaknesses or potential weaknesses that you find here. Additionally, comment on how and why personnel in county public health offices may be overwhelmed during a pandemic and what tasks they would have to address to assist in response to and mitigation of the disaster.
The format you use for the case analysis is flexible. You could prepare a PPT that is designed like a short training course (~20-25 slides) or you can prepare it in a more narrative, report-type format (something ~6-8 pages should cover it). You could also choose to create something like a trainer’s manual (using Word) that an instructor would rely on to train a group of public health workers.
Reference to appropriate authoritative resources and official websites. Must be accessible online. Use New Times Roman 12 font with 1” margins and APA style. If needed.
