(POD 2501) Advanced Topics in Point of Dispensing (POD): Design, Management, and Evaluation
This course focuses of the design, management and evaluation of point of dispensing (POD) sites during major disasters. Dr. Hupert begins the course with an introduction to the flow of bio-event activation and response, and then describes ways in which computer models can better facilitate POD management. He then describes how planners can distinguish between natural variability and significant problems and asserts that as the duration of time for dispensing gets smaller, the amount of staff needed grows exponentially. Historic examples within the research literature on point of dispensing (POD) management are also discussed.
