Webinar Recording: Local Health Department Role in Containment of Novel Resistance

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.

Learning Objectives

  • 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
