This project aims to identify and bolster the public health preparedness of community health centers, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), nurse-managed health centers, and retail-based health care centers.
We assess the landscape of training resources currently available to these centers and clinics, identify preparedness best practices, build useful tools, and provide training and technical assistance. Our educational efforts include presenting webinars and designing publications with the goal of better enabling health clinics and centers to be able to respond to a pandemic or other public health emergency.
The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium has partnered with the Public Health Management Corporation’s Research and Evaluation Group and the Convenient Care Association for the public health preparedness project. This project is funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Network of Public Health Institutes.
