What does this tool do?
This is a comprehensive
train-the-trainer package to be used by those who educate and conduct
exercises involving public health department staff with emergency
response roles. The intent of this training package is to improve team
communications, functionality, efficiency and effectiveness by teaching
and giving participants opportunities to practice key communication
strategies and tools. It provides participants with basic knowledge
about high reliability teams and organizations, as well as step-by-step
functional exercise guidelines.
This tool can be used as initial training for staff with new response
roles, new to the department, or as a refresher training. The package
includes instructor materials (training content and script, instructor
manual), student materials, debrief facilitation guidance, exercise
packet, and pre- and post-training assessments. The training takes
approximately 60-90 minutes to deliver and can be delivered in a
classroom setting or via distance learning methods.
Who should use this tool?
This tool assists
public health departments or other agencies in training staff that have
response roles in team function and communications.
