- Medical Office Planner
The Medical Office Preparedness Planner is a tool for PCPs and office managers to use to develop a pandemic influenza plan for their office, and then integrate their plan into the broader community plan. Likewise, it can also help familiarize community partners, such as public health and emergency management, with the planning, preparations, and challenges facing PCP offices in the event of a pandemic. It can be tailored to any PCP office, regardless of size, location, or resources.
