Pandemic Influenza Planning: Health and Social Service Planning for Wales

Agency: 
National Public Health Service for Wales
Practice Description: 

Wales' report contains useful algorithms and protocols for health care workers who will be performing initial triage during a pandemic. Flow charts of care pathways move toward specific clinical goals for particular populations, including pediatrics, pregnant women, and residents of long-term care facilities. The flow charts and protocols are designed to evaluate the specific needs of individuals in order to provide an optimum level of care with available resources. The logic of the flow charts could be adapted to other agencies, although they were originally specific to Wales' health care delivery system.
