As issues with drug resistant pathogens have emerged across the country, local health departments (LHDs) have been called on to lead and support the containment of novel or targeted multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). To explore this role, NACCHO hosted a webinar to share the experiences of three LHDs who have been affected by containment events.
- Describe the experiences of three local health departments supporting containment responses
- Identify the role of local health departments in containment of MDROs
- Discuss how other local health departments may prepare for similar events
