Coalition Development Workshop

bParati Workshop Set Up

At an annual preparedness conference, you end up in a room that's either half empty or one that's overflowing out the door with a temperature hovering around 110 degrees. So, you stand in the hall and try to hear what's being said....

as the presenters proceed to the podium one at a time, each reading bullet points from their slides and then closing with, "any questions?"

We cap attendance at 60 and give you an intimate environment that promotes two-way conversation throughout. And we really dislike bullet points.

At an annual preparedness conference, there are dozens of sessions to choose from, some are rock solid, some not so much; some delivered by dynamic presenters, some that put you to sleep. That's what happens when the conference planning committee must deliver meaningful offerings to over 1,000 attendees, from newbies to talented veterans

We offer a boutique experience facilitated by three nationally renowned experts focused on your coalition development needs.

bParati Healthcare Coalition Workshop Curriculum

Many preparedness conferences offer great sessions, but not necessarily the right sessions for healthcare coalition leadership. Sometimes you don't need the most information; you need precise solutions.

And that's why we focus exclusively on key areas within the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response's 2017-2022 Healthcare Preparedness and Response (HCPR) Capabilities, Capability 1: The Foundation for Healthcare and Medical Readiness and 2017-2022 HPP Funding Opportunity Announcement, Domain Strategy 1: Strengthen Community Resilience.

it's a narrow target by design

healthcare coalition leadership, interim boards, and state preparedness staff

bParati Healthcare Coalition Workshop Locations

Most healthcare coalition workshops are intended to feed the needs of every member or, in some cases, the unique needs of a subset of members, such as long-term care centers or community health centers. And that's what coalitions are all about – delivering shared cost, shared effort preparedness opportunities like EOP, COOP, and risk assessment workshops and the design and delivery of exercises.

This workshop is different. It is targeted to reach coalition leaders from any number of coalitions in a multi-state region or within a single state.

Think of it as a shared cost, shared effort organizational development opportunity for the healthcare coalition's leaders, rather than a shared preparedness opportunity for its members.

The annual conference is important, but it comes around only once a year. And it's unlikely to hit the coalition development target.

When you need help tackling a precise set of challenges, why wait all year hoping the annual conference agenda will meet today's needs?
