Description

The Decision Theater project team will develop and conduct a public survey to collect response information about public health risk communication messaging and will develop an optimal risk communication message pathway model that considers the potential variable pandemic conditions and guidelines. A written report of the results of this survey and the messaging model will be submitted to ADHS to use during pandemic influenza response activities and will be presented at a workshop to hospitals, local jurisdictions, and public information officers. The workshop will be held in Phoenix or Tempe, Arizona and will include up to 100 participants. The ASU Decision Theater will be responsible for provision of the workshop site, document content, participant evaluation, facilitation, presentation, debriefing, ASU staff transportation and any accommodation costs, refreshments, all workshop materials and equipment, resource staff, printing of documents, and after action conference for the workshop. ADHS PHEP staff will participate in the development and execution of the workshop; however, the subsequent After-Action Report will be completed by the Decision Theater project team. The Decision Theater project team will conduct an additional survey of workshop participants to validate and adjust the initial developed risk communication message pathway model and will submit to ADHS a written report detailing these results. In March 2010, the Decision Theater project team will deliver metrics of the effectiveness of the developed risk communication message pathway model used by ADHS and submit this final written report to ADHS. The Decision Theater project team will conduct at minimum a Concept and Objectives Meeting and Initial Planning Conference prior to the start of the initial survey, a Mid- Planning Conference prior to the Workshop, a Mid -Planning Conference prior to the initiation of the second survey, and a Final Planning Conference prior to the beginning of the effectiveness evaluation. ADHS/PHEP staff will assist with the development and review of all documents and participate in any conferences.
