22 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

23 Vulnerability Physical disability Cognitive disability Language barrier (e.g., English, literacy) Elderly or children Conditional impairments –Mental noise –Environmental barriers –Trust –Knowledge barriers

24 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

25 Universal Design in Our Lives Source:

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

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

32 Pocket Communicator Worker to client Internal communication tool Clerical & clinical functions Does not replace other forms of communication

33 Language Barriers Identifies barriers early Provides client with visual reassurance Affords easier access to translation

58 Communicating Recalls Differently

59 It started with toothpaste.. Recall of toothpaste product Cambridge Public Health mobilizes inspectors Toothpaste sold in non-English speaking markets Toothpaste being purchased and sent home to Haiti and Latin America

60 Response Cambridge Public Health first issued a press release

61 119 Windsor St. Ground Level Cambridge, MA Fax For Immediate ReleaseContact: Susan Feinberg, MPH June 20, 2007Communications Specialist Cambridge Public Health Dept FDA Issues Toothpaste Warning The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has issued two warnings this month about certain toothpastes manufactured in China and South Africa that may contain a toxic chemical called diethylene glycol (DEG).U.S. Food & Drug Administration In the U.S., these products are typically being sold at "dollar-type" discount stores, convenience stores, and small food markets. Suspect tubes of toothpaste have reportedly been found in Somerville and Sturbridge, as well as in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Florida. As of June 8, there were no U.S. reports of poisonings from toothpaste containing DEG. The chemical, which is commonly found in antifreeze, is sometimes used illegally as an inexpensive sweetener and thickening agent. Cambridge residents should throw away or return to the store for refund: 1) Any toothpaste labeled as "Made in China.""Made in China." 2) Any fake Colgate toothpaste, which is:fake Colgate toothpaste Labeled as "Manufactured in South Africa" A 5-oz. or 100 ml tube Contains misspelled words on the label, including "South African Dental Assoxiation," "SOUTH AFRLCA, and "isclinically" 119 Windsor St. Ground Level Cambridge, MA Fax

62 Implementation Translation challenges arose Someone asked about pictograms Cambridge tried something different…

63

64 Product Recalls- What we know now

65 Current state Food recalls impact all communities Current communication of recall information is targeted to media outlets Translation and communication are resource intensive Local health departments are challenged to provide timely information to constituents in accessible formats

66 Other Countries Requirements Vendor must advertise recall in newspaper Format and size are by regulation This border is a universal recall symbol in Australia

67

68

69 Cambridge APC Proposal A readily usable tool to create simple & effective communication material for recalls

70 Cambridge APC Proposal - How Build upon successful use of pictograms for Dispensing Sites Develop pictograms for food recalls Develop food recall flyer template Include instructions on pulling information from FDA press releases Include pictogram images for use in template

71 Cambridge APC Proposal What would this look like?
