Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza (2009)
Part 3: More information for Decision Makers and Health Professional
Part 3 of the AHMPPI is primarily for decision makers and health professionals as it contains information to support health sector decision making at a national level.
Part 3 covers the following:
- Decision making structure—health sector coordination at a national level
- Decision making process—how decisions will be made
- Assumptions that have been used for planning and which will guide the response during the pandemic
- Looking to the future.
Sections A and B need to be read in conjunction with decision structures and processes that are outlined in jurisdictional health sector pandemic plans, as well as both national and jurisdictional whole of government pandemic plans.
Section C provides a summary of the scientific rationale for selecting each assumption. Section C needs to be read in conjunction with the relevant technical annexes to understand how these assumptions have been used to guide planning and how they would be used to guide decision making during a pandemic.
Section D is a summary of advances made to prepare Australia and the challenge of how to ensure we remain prepared.
