2016 PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop

In an infectious disease outbreak or after a terrorist strikes, being ready to treat highly infectious patients with critical drugs, vaccines and therapeutics can mean the difference between life and death. Is your hospital or healthcare facility ready to respond and get your patients the care they need?

The federal government supports the development of medical countermeasures for use during health emergencies, like an anthrax attack or outbreak of pandemic influenza. Hospitals and healthcare coalitions play a vital role in getting those medical countermeasures to the people who need them when seconds count.

If you are an administrator or emergency planner for a hospital, healthcare facility or healthcare coalition who is interested in meeting the challenges that emerging infectious diseases and terrorist threats pose to our nation’s health, join us for the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) Stakeholders Workshop on January 6-7, 2016.

The PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop gives you an opportunity to learn about emerging trends and network with your colleagues in the healthcare industry, including first responders and clinicians. You will also have the opportunity to meet many of the people who develop, purchase or coordinate the use of medical countermeasures, including members of the pharmaceutical industry as well as local, state and federal emergency planners.

Health care professionals attending the workshop will learn about dealing with emerging infectious diseases, lessons from the response to the Ebola outbreak, and how better communication with the public can improve health outcomes and prevent emergency departments from becoming overwhelmed during public health emergencies.

During this event, you can contribute to discussions on the usability of medical countermeasures in a disaster and share your thoughts on developing drugs, vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics that can be more effectively deployed. We’ll talk about PHEMCE preparedness goals and operational capacity, clinical guidance on the use of medical countermeasures, and the Strategic National Stockpile.

Join professionals from the front lines of health to the production lines of the pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers who develop medical countermeasures. Register today!
