20 Prepare Clients for POD Experience Information: What will happen How will it happen What they will be asked Delivery: Perceive Understand Personally Applicable

21 Identify the groups within the at- risk population with special needs Determine resources available/needed to serve these groups Initiate the special populations plan Special Effort for Special Populations

22 Population Vulnerability Physical disability Cognitive disability Language barrier (e.g., English, literacy) Conditional impairments –Mental noise –Environmental barriers –Trust –Knowledge barriers

23 A Preparedness Paradigm Shift 1.Many will be vulnerable in an emergency 2.Specialized services deters those with special needs 3.Specialized preparedness is unsustainable for local health Access Umbrella

24 Universal Design in Our Lives Source:

25 Making Dispensing Sites Universally Accessible Physically accessible Information to communicate to many Information to exchange interpersonally

26 Universal De-SIGN Communicate through trusted sources Identify station purpose with a picture Simple one-word station description Provide language translation

27 Mass Communication: Signage Outlines Service & Process information Identifies station purpose Improves efficiency Decreases anxiety Expands usability Increases access to service
