Report on Travels

Over the past week, Susan and I attended the Medical Library Association (MLA) meeting in Philadelphia and the Virginia Hospital Emergency Management Forum in Charlottesville. We presented a poster (click on link below) at the MLA meeting and received a lot of nice feedback and made some good contacts. (We’ll be following up with everyone next week following the long weekend.) The Virginia Hospital Emergency Management Forum was particularly valuable, as it introduced us to several new topics of interest, and it was great meeting folks whose jobs deal specifically with disaster planning. Some of the topics that we learned about at the forum that will be explored further in the blog include the following:

Surge Planning
Altered Standards of Care
Medical Reserve Corps
Use of Faith-based Groups in Disaster Planning
