Many catastrophic disaster plans include provisions of support from neighboring jurisdictions that likely will not be available in a regional disaster. Bringing multiple groups and sectors together that don't routinely work with each other can augment a response to a disaster but can also be extremely difficult because of the multi-disciplinary communication and coordination needed to ensure effective medical and public health response.In March 2014, the Institute of Medicine Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events convened a regional workshop bringing together key stakeholders to examine community planning and engagement when planning for health incidents in a large-scale response. This report highlights the presentations and discussion of that event.
