Education Week - Public Health Preparedness for the OHN: Creating a Closed Point of Dispensing

Presenter: 

Amy Dailey, RN, MSN, COHN-S/CM, CHSP

Recorded on

Join AAOHN for a timely, and updated discussion on closed Points of Dispensing (P.O.D.) locations. OHN's may be in a position to support their workplace or their community to provide mass immunizations or medication in a public health crisis. P.O.D. sites allow for healthcare professionals to dispense and administer medical countermeasures such as vaccines, antiviral drugs, antibiotics, antitoxins, and chemical antidotes. But are there risks involved? The presenter discusses the benefits and the risks, and the current development of immunizations to combat COVID-19. OHN's will develop planning tools to support a workplace vaccination program in support of the current health crisis.

Course Outcomes:

Upon completion of this session, the learner will be able to:

  1. Learners will describe how a closed P.O.D. works and its value in supporting a public health crisis.
  2. Learners will utilize knowledge and resources provided in presentation to set up a P.O.D. in their workplace if need presents in the community.
