August 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Access and Functional Needs Guidebook, developed by Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center under a grant from the California Community Foundation and with the assistance of the California Office of Emergency Services, was developed with the intent of assisting hospital emergency preparedness managers in developing their disaster programs to meet the needs of Access and Functional Needs populations, as required by new CMS regulations. This webinar will present and describe the Guidebook, and will include:
1. List of 24 AFN communities and dozens of sub-communities
2. List of “best practice” hospital AFN policies and procedures
3. List of websites for best AFN agencies and organizations
4. AFN Risk Assessment tool
