Please join us for the next Project ECHO series on Individual and Workforce Resilience: Before, During, and After a Prolonged Hurricane Emergency. Utilizing video conference technology, the Project ECHO model provides public health professionals opportunities to engage with subject matter experts and participate in a peer-to-peer learning community where problems, ideas, and solutions are explored together.
In this six-session ECHO series, participants will learn to facilitate individual and workforce strategies focused on managing stressors induced by prolonged hurricane emergencies.
Public health professionals responsible for or engaged in ground-level response to hurricanes. Our geographic priority areas include Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. However, other jurisdictions/locations will be considered as space is available, so we encourage you to sign up.
Session 1: Introduction and Overview – Stressors in Extended Incidents – Strategies to select and apply interventions that manage the stressors and/or negative stressor effects on self and workforce.
Session 2: Individual Stressors – Actionable strategies to mediate, prevent, and manage stressors, and promote resilience in these prolonged events.
Session 3: Professional/Workforce Stress in Response – Assess individual and workforce stress during response and interventions that may reduce stressors in the workforce.
Session 4: Organizational Stressors for the Workforce: Preparedness Interventions – Organizational guidance that can promote resilience in responder personnel through changes in recruitment, training and responder support, including guidance for work intervals and related elements that affect workforce well-being.
Session 5: Organizational Stressors for the Workforce: Response Interventions – Describe and demonstrate understanding, through discussion, of stressors from the relationship between the individual’s disaster response role and the disaster operations of the public health organizations in which they work.
Session 6: Individual, Workforce, and Organizational Stressors: Demobilization and Recovery Interventions – Describe and demonstrate understanding, through discussion, of the strategies that organizations can operationalize to mediate, prevent, and mange stressors, and promote resilience during demobilization and adjusting back to “normal” following extended disaster response.
To get the most out of the series, participants are expected to attend all six sessions and actively contribute to discussions. Participants should always join each session using both video and audio, so everyone can be seen and heard.
