Workshop Goal

The goal of the workshop is to develop an alternate care system plan for the Northern Region to ensure provision of healthcare during a heavy medical surge event. Discussions and activities will focus on heavy/catastrophic surge within the context of a pandemic influenza scenario.

Workshop Objectives

  • Identify alternate care system options that could work for the community.
  • Determine the criteria (who, what, where, when, why, assumptions) for each identified alternate care system option.
  • Identify the advantages/disadvantages, implementation criteria, and needed resources/tools for each identified alternate care system option.
  • Select the alternate care system options that will work best for the community.
  • Define roles and responsibilities of the individual partners involved in the planning for and implementation of each selected alternate care system option.
  • Identify the components of a "decision tree" for a community alternate care system.
  • Develop an alternate care system plan that incorporates the selected alternate care system options.
