Appendix E Public Committee Meeting Agendas and Proceedings of a Workshop—in Brief The committee held 10 in-person meetings from January 2018 through March 2020; portions of 4 of these meetings were open to the public as part of the committee’s information gathering for this study:  The committee’s first in-person meeting, held in January 2018, included an open session at which the sponsors of the study provided their perspectives on the charge to the committee, and state and local public health emergency preparedness and response (PHEPR) practitioners provided additional background information and context for the study.  The committee’s second in-person meeting, held in April 2018, included a public session at which the committee heard from researchers who have conducted similar reviews and grading of PHEPR practices to understand the nature of the evidence base, as well as the methods used and challenges experienced, and to hear from experts whose input helped inform the committee’s prioritization of PHEPR Capabilities for this review.  The committee’s July 2018 in-person meeting included a public session at which researchers and practitioners discussed existing evidence-grading frameworks used to evaluate the effectiveness of practices in health and nonhealth fields, the potential application of those existing frameworks for assessing the effectiveness of PHEPR practices, and the potential role of evidence gleaned from sources other than controlled trials and quasi-experimental studies in an evidence review methodology for PHEPR practices. A summary of this discussion is captured in a Proceedings of a Workshop—in Brief.1  The committee’s January 2019 in-person meeting included a public session at which the committee engaged with PHEPR practitioners to identify knowledge gaps that matter to them, and to assess the relative priority, from their perspective, of potential evidence review topics encompassed within the 15 Centers for Disease Control and 1 Available at https://www.nap.edu/catalog/25510 (accessed June 18, 2020).

When communities face complex public health emergencies, state local, tribal, and territorial public health agencies must make difficult decisions regarding how to effectively respond. The public health emergency preparedness and response (PHEPR) system, with its multifaceted mission to prevent, protect against, quickly respond to, and recover from public health emergencies, is inherently complex and encompasses policies, organizations, and programs. Since the events of September 11, 2001, the United States has invested billions of dollars and immeasurable amounts of human capital to develop and enhance public health emergency preparedness and infrastructure to respond to a wide range of public health threats, including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear events. Despite the investments in research and the growing body of empirical literature on a range of preparedness and response capabilities and functions, there has been no national-level, comprehensive review and grading of evidence for public health emergency preparedness and response practices comparable to those utilized in medicine and other public health fields.

Evidence-Based Practice for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response reviews the state of the evidence on PHEPR practices and the improvements necessary to move the field forward and to strengthen the PHEPR system. This publication evaluates PHEPR evidence to understand the balance of benefits and harms of PHEPR practices, with a focus on four main areas of PHEPR: engagement with and training of community-based partners to improve the outcomes of at-risk populations after public health emergencies; activation of a public health emergency operations center; communication of public health alerts and guidance to technical audiences during a public health emergency; and implementation of quarantine to reduce the spread of contagious illness.
