Hospital Resiliency – Executive Briefing Toolkit

Hospital Resiliency – Executive Briefing Toolkit
Mar 22 cdphadmin

During workshops and training sessions around the state, the issue of engaging executives and aligning emergency management and business continuity with organizational strategies, has been a reoccurring priority for emergency managers. In response, the California Department of Public Health Emergency Preparedness Office created Hospital Resiliency – Executive Briefing Toolkit as a multi-media program to outline the importance of having a complete hospital emergency management program from the perspective of hospital executives.

It’s our hope that this toolkit will inspire executives in healthcare organizations across the country to examine their perspectives and priorities surrounding emergency management, and consider how they work with their emergency management team to create a more resilient hospital and community.

A description and link to each resource in the toolkit is provided below:
