The threat of an infectious disease pandemic is always a possibility as new pathogens emerge, and old pathogens mutate. The impact of an infectious pandemic not only affects society, but it also affects health care operations and the physical and mental health of the staff. The healthcare delivery systems become overwhelmed, causing an increasing need in staffing, supplies, medications, and planning for alternative and non-traditional patient care environments. The need and evidence-based guidelines to protect healthcare personnel from becoming infected and burned out will be highlighted, including recommendations for identification of medical and mental health issues that arise with healthcare workers. This activity will discuss the impact pandemic outbreaks have on the healthcare delivery system, and strategies to minimize the effects through effective communication channels and a coordinated response.
