OPEN SESSION 2: INDICATORS AND TRIGGERS ALONG THE CONVENTIONAL, CONTINGENCY, CRISIS CONTINUUM OF SURGE RESPONSE AND STANDARDS OF CARE

Session Objectives: To explore indicators and triggers for transitions along the continuum of care, from conventional to contingency to crisis surge capacity and standards of care, and back to conventional standards of care. Specifically,

  • Identify potential indicators and triggers for different components of the emergency response system.
  • Identify existing metrics for these indicators and triggers.
  • Examine challenges that stakeholders would face in using these indicators and triggers to determine whether the health system should implement actions to avoid contingency or crisis surge capacity and standards of care plans and, later on, to determine when the health system should move back to conventional standards of care.
  • Discuss the process through which stakeholders could work together to determine indicators and triggers for a specific jurisdiction. Identify successful multistakeholder processes that could serve as models for developing templates for multistakeholder discussions about indicators and triggers.
