Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Possible uses and use restrictions...

Applicants shall demonstrate linkages and relationships with entities such as the CDC Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism Program awardees, the HRSA Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program awardees and others that provide emergency preparedness and response training. Proposals shall indicate that the training supported with these funds will not only focus on the discipline specific knowledge, skills and abilities needed to recognize, treat and efficiently report instances of a terrorist event, but will also prepare the learners to participate in a multidisciplinary terrorist response reflecting a two-tiered approach. Each course of study shall include both discipline-appropriate clinically oriented material and the team collaboration/coordination to respond to terrorist events. These activities will outline the integrated professional roles and responsibilities inherent in a community response and may include participation in drills, exercises and/or simulations occurring in the state or regions. Proposals addressing the continuing education component of this program shall establish and maintain a programmatic advisory board with members including representatives of the CDC Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism Program, the HRSA Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program, an academic health center, other health professions schools and both service providers and consumers from the area served by the program. The advisory board shall meet no less than twice a year. Proposals addressing the curriculum development component of this program shall show that funds awarded will be utilized in conjunction with no less than three health care disciplines. Whereas one school, the applicant, will be held responsible for implementing the curriculum, training must be used by no less than three disciplines.
