Mass Antibiotic Dispensing: A Primer (Web on Demand)

Course Number: WD0046

This program was originally broadcast on June 24, 2004. The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) was established in 1999 at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to provide an inventory of medications and medical supplies available to send to a location in the event of a large infectious disease outbreak or other public health emergency, including a bioterrorism attack. SNS planners are charged with planning for the arrival of the supplies to augment local and state resources. Key to the arrival of SNS medications and supplies is planning for mass antibiotic dispensing. The overarching goal of a dispensing operation is to decrease the pool of people exposed or presenting during an event. This program provides SNS planners with an overview of the critical aspects of a mass dispensing operation. The presenters discuss policy and operational issues that need to be wrestled with, resolved, and planned for, prior to an event.
