All Hazards Emergency Preparedness and Response Competencies for Health Center Staff

To successfully perform their assigned emergency/disaster roles, health center staff must understand how their organization will respond to hazards, including the use of altered management structures and modified operations. The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) and the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) created a set of competencies to improve the emergency and disaster preparedness of all health center staff. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of those competencies and sub-competencies, as well as a description of their development process. The competencies are intended to form the foundation of health center staff education and preparedness for all-hazards emergency and disaster response and will allow health centers to direct their limited training time and resources to cover the most essential preparedness aspects.
