The Partners in Preparedness Project aims to serve a critical need in the COVID-19 response by partnering experienced mentors with key personnel in critical access hospitals and long-term care facilities across Nebraska. Mentors will draw upon years of experience in infection control, emergency planning, and response/recovery to serve as a single touch-point to facility emergency response coordinators as they navigate through their facility’s COVID-19 response. Brief, daily chats will help educate, reassure, and explore challenges and successes together.
This “request for a mentor” is available only to the one individual designated as the emergency response coordinator for their long-term care facility or critical access hospital. You may direct questions to Leslie Scofield with the Center for Preparedness Education & UNMC College of Public Health at email@example.com.
The program is supported by the Nebraska Health Care Foundation and the Donald E. Nielsen Foundation.
