Recent reductions to the public health workforce have made it more important and also more challenging to train in emergency preparedness and response.

NWCPHP has been funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to compile, summarize, and make available a variety of learning products developed by the Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (PERLC) and Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Centers (PERRC) networks. The project will synthesize and disseminate training products for knowledge users including researchers, decision makers, practitioners, the public health workforce, trainers, and educators.

PERRCoLATE Project: Translation, Application, and Evaluation of Public Health Emergency Communication Products

PERRCoLATE Project researchers are focusing on the translation, application, and evaluation of research products and trainings developed by the CDC-funded Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Centers (PERRC) and Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Centers (PERLC) with the goal of utilizing these products to improve public health preparedness and response practices, policies, and programs.

Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center Training Catalog

The intent of the PERLC program was to meet the preparedness and response training and educational needs of the US public health workforce by providing assistance to state, tribal, local, and/or territorial public health authorities within applicant-defined service areas. The Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) is the national coordinating center, working in collaboration with CDC, to support this work. The Guide to the Selection and Use of Preparedness and Response Training for the Public Health Workforce in State, Tribal, Local and/or Territorial Practice Settings project created a comprehensive catalog of training developed with adult learning principles and evaluated by end users to increase the value, frequency, and efficiency of public health training related to preparedness and response.
