Online Education & Training
Share |

Below are recommended education and training opportunities that are applicable for Community Health Centers as you continue to build and implement emergency plans.

Yale University Center for Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response

Yale offers a series of on-line courses on "emergency preparedness topics for public health, hospital and health care workers. The web-based courses are available at no cost to the user. The Yale site includes some courses that would be of tremendous interest to CHC staff members. A course on "mental health” would be of interest to CHC social service staff members and other clinicians. Another course of particular interest to many CHC staff members (particularly clinicians) is "Small Victims; Big Challenges,” an offering on pediatrics and emergency response.

National Association of Community Health Centers

NACHC provides members with information on relevant emergency management education and training, and includes such offerings in NACHC’s annual conferences and periodic web-casts or teleconferences.

The Association of State and Territorial Health Organizations (ASTHO)

ASTHO hosts an annual conference and periodic additional conferences and forums. Many of the attendees represent State/territorial public health officials, but also represent those in leadership roles at public health and health care organizations.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)

NACCHO hosts an annual public health summit in early spring in Washington, D.C. Many issues addressed are those that are of interest to local public health and health care organizations. The Summit has increasingly included sessions that are applicable to CHCs and emergency management.
