Appendix B Mixed-Method Reviews of Selected Topics INTRODUCTION TO THE MIXED-METHOD REVIEWS This appendix details the mixed-method review process and evidence for each of the four review topics. Each review followed a similar process (see Chapter 3 and Appendix A), which was conducted by the committee, staff, and several commissioned groups. This appendix is broken down into four parts, describing the mixed-method reviews for the four following topic areas: ï· engaging with and training community-based partners to improve the outcomes of at- risk populations after public health emergencies (Capability 1, Community Preparedness); ï· activating a public health emergency operations center (Capability 3, Emergency Operations Coordination); ï· communicating public health alerts and guidance with technical audiences during a public health emergency (Capability 6, Information Sharing); and ï· implementing quarantine to reduce or stop the spread of a contagious disease (Capability 11, Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions).
