Telemedicine Focus Group

The Telemedicine Focus Group (TMFG) focuses on optimizing providers’ ability to deliver effective pediatric treatment across regional and state lines by developing resources and guidelines. The TMFG coordinates with hospitals and command centers to leverage telehealth programs into the larger context of crisis management and help stabilize emergency needs.

Mental Health Focus Group

The Mental Health Focus Group has a strong team of experts providing resources and programs. Their focus is on educating providers in triaging and assessing pediatric mental health needs during a disaster. In addition, the Mental Health Focus Group also focuses on care post-disaster considering that mental health often calls for long term and follow-up care, especially in adolescents.

Legal Resource Guide

Several focus groups have collaborated to develop a legal resource guide. The guide is intended to serve as a reference for emergency managers, administrators, and providers to successfully deliver care during a disaster. The core objective of this guide is to produce a strategic assessment of legal or policy issues affecting the development of a regional model to enhance emergency pediatric disaster responses.
