Description of the Identified Healthcare Concern

You are the Vice-President of Nursing Services at a 500 bed facility that provides healthcare to a 6 county region that occurs in two different but adjoining states.  Recently you attended a national conference regarding infectious diseases and the potential for their spread with our current global environment.  Upon return from the conference, you have a conversation with a local public health official who identifies that there is no regional plan to combat an infectious disease outbreak.  In addition, the official noted the presence of several barriers which will make the development of a plan more of a challenge.  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Identification of a plan that would cover a large region and a diverse population of approximately one million people
  • Identification of a plan that could be coordinated from one facility, but interact successfully with 6 different counties and two different state governments
  • The presence of a regional airport which increases the opportunity for introducing an infectious disease to the region

From the conversation, you realize that a coalition will be needed and that application of leadership skills at the macro-systems level will be required for the coalition to be successful.  You now accept the challenge to build a coalition within the region to develop a plan that would resist a sudden outbreak of an infectious illness.
