Point of Dispensing (POD) Operations Training

 

If a bioterrorist attack or widespread disease ever occurs, Tulsa Health Department (THD) will open temporary emergency “Points of Dispensing” (PODs) to provide emergency medical countermeasures to protect against the threat. It is vital to have our OKMRC volunteers and THD employees trained in specific roles to begin dispensing/administering medications to Tulsa County residents. In this training, you will learn about THD’s role in the Strategic National Stockpile, POD operation requirements/positions and dispensing procedures.

 

The Tulsa Health Department will be conducting a full scale exercise at ORU on October 8th.

In preparation, a training about Flu POD Operations will occur to enhance knowledge about the interworking of a Point of Dispensing Site (POD), as well as roles and responsibilities of POD staff.

Full Scale Exercises allow THD and OKMRC to practice and improve Tulsa County’s Emergency Operations Plan and Mass Immunizations and Prophylaxis Strategy (MIPS) Plan for real world public health events.

 

This training is for those individuals who will be signing up for the Full Scale Exercise/Flu POD on October 8th.  If you have been to a previous THD POD Training and feel comfortable in your role, training is not mandatory.  However, if you have never attended a POD Operations Training or feel you need a refresher, attendance is HIGHLY encouraged. 

 

There will be two trainings offered before the October 8th POD.  You only need to attend one training as the materials covered will be the same.  Details below:
