Mass Antibiotic Dispensing: A Primer (Webcast)


SNS planners are charged with planning for the arrival of Strategic National Stockpile supplies to augment local and state resources. Key to the arrival of SNS medications and supplies is planning for mass antibiotic dispensing. The overarching goal of a dispensing operation is to decrease the pool of people exposed or presenting during an event.

This satellite broadcast will provide SNS planners with an overview of the critical aspects of a mass dispensing operation. The presenters will discuss policy and operational issues that need to be wrestled with, resolved, and planned for, prior to an event.
