"We Have The Plan-----Now What?"

Critical partners in Utah, including Dr Mark Shah, Utah Hospital Association, and the Utah Department of Health were engaged in development of Utah's Crisis Standards of Care Guidelines from 2009-2019. Across this decade, many lessons were learned along the way, pitfalls were overcome, and new opportunities arose to adapt the plan to changing requirements and needs. This review will include a look back at critical junctures of the Utah CSC Guidelines development, partner engagement, the importance of a clinical champion, and moving past challenges. The session will continue with the "Now What?" ---now that the Guidelines are complete, where do we go from here? Topics will include distribution, testing through exercises, plan revisions, and new areas for consideration as annexes. Finally, we will review the application of CSC concepts into the Regional Healthcare Coalition model.
