Crisis Standards of Care: Ten Years of Successes and Challenges
November 21 @ 8:00 am - November 22 @ 12:00 pm EST
The National Academies is conducting a two-day public workshop in Washington, DC to explore the evolution and implementation of crisis standards of care (CSC) since the publication of the NASEM report Guidance for Establishing Crisis Standards of Care for Use in Disaster Situations: A Letter Report in 2009. Specific topics that will be discussed include:
- The experiences, successes and challenges of planning for and implementing CSC plans at the local, state and federal level;
- Shifts in planning assumptions as a result of specific operational experiences, changes to treatment protocols, availability of new or difference resources, and advances in technology;
- Accepted issues and outstanding legal and ethical challenges; and
- Potential opportunities for continued development and implementation of crisis standards of care plans for the next ten years.
The workshop will include plenary sessions, small breakout sessions, and a published proceedings.
It is free and open to the public via in-person attendance or live webcast.
