Date:4/27/2009

PRINCETON, N.J., April 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NJHA's Valerie Sellers was a panelist today at an Institute of Medicine regional workshop on emergency preparedness in New York.

The regional workshops, "Standards of Care During a Mass Casualty Event," are part of an Institute of Medicine initiative to support the nation's healthcare providers as they plan for a public health emergency. The lessons are applicable to an array of health emergencies and illustrate the healthcare community's commitment to emergency preparedness.

Sellers, NJHA's senior vice president of health planning and research, is serving on the Provider Communities panel, which addresses the roles and responsibilities of hospitals and other healthcare providers in implementing standard of care protocols to guide them in caring for a surge in patients.

"Today's swine flu headlines are a dramatic backdrop to this workshop and countless other preparedness activities that healthcare providers have been engaged in," said Sellers.

The resource includes 10 modules that address how to develop effective policies and procedures in critical areas s
