HPP Partner Community,


Please see below for two new resources that may be of interest to you and your members.


Rapid Expert Consultation on Staffing Considerations for Crisis Standards of Care for the COVID-19 Pandemic


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s (NASEM)Standing Committee on Emerging Infectious Diseases and 21st Century Health Threats released a new publication,Rapid Expert Consultation on Staffing Considerations for Crisis Standards of Care for the COVID-19 Pandemic, that identifies key considerations for maximizing the availability of qualified staff, particularly for respiratory therapy and critical care nursing, in meeting COVID-19 patient care needs during outbreaks.

If you would like to learn more, NASEM is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 4:00 PM ET to brief stakeholders on the consultation document and provide an opportunity for Q&A.


Rural Healthcare Surge Readiness Web Portal

We know rural health care faces unique challenges in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Healthcare Resilience Working Group (HRWG) developed the Rural Healthcare Surge Readiness web portal, a collection of essential rural health care resources, tools, and trainings that health care workers and organizations – including EMS & 9-1-1, inpatient & hospital care, ambulatory care, and long-term care – can use to prepare for and respond to COVID-19. This one-stop shop for rural health care lets users quickly find the information they need to prepare for or respond to surge events, navigate financial challenges related to the pandemic, and can enhance their capacity and capability to provide lifesaving care to Americans who live in rural areas across the country.


Reach the portal here: and please use the attached media kit to share with your networks.
