Closed POD Partnerships: Train the Trainer (Web site)


The Closed POD Partnerships: Train the Trainer Web site is designed for businesses, faith based and community based organizations, higher education institutions (colleges and universities) and federal agencies that are interested in partnering with their local health department as closed Points of Dispensing (POD) for mass dispensing of antibiotics to employees, family members and/or clients in the event of a large scale infectious disease emergency. This resource includes self-guided online training modules, forms, templates, fact sheets, planning resources and checklists.

By the end of the training modules, staff should know how to activate a Closed POD, how to conduct Just-In-Time Trainings, how a Closed POD works and how to set up a Closed POD. This resource includes information useful for staff setting up and working a closed POD.

This tool was created as part of the Public Health Preparedness mini-grant entitled "Innovative Solutions in Public Health Preparedness" in 2009.

This tool is extremely well put together and very helpful. It's by far the most comprehensive resource available for closed PODs. I used alot of the information to develop our closed POD program.
