The session will begin with some insight into human behavior and how communications can be tailored to promote the desired outcome. Message building will consist of instruction on “what to say” and “how to say it” and participants will review examples of good messaging. Finally, participants will build messages tailored to their own organizations.

Beyond Regulations: Making a Business Case for Preparedness & Continuity Programs
AHEPP Professional Standard: Program Management

Presented by Kirstin Nunez, Senior Operations Manager, Emergency Management & Business Continuity at Intermountain Healthcare 
The cost of healthcare continues to rise as does the demand to keep spending and premiums low. Healthcare leaders must make decisions about where to spend each dollar. In this interactive session, participants will discuss and practice developing a business case for investment in a sustainable preparedness and/or continuity program that goes beyond regulatory compliance. Specifically, we will build a powerful value proposition, review various risk assessment tools, cover barriers to investing in a program, and make dollars and “sense” of compelling data so participants can return to their home organization ready to make the case for their program.

How to Create and Optimize Training for the Adult Learner
AHEPP Professional Standard: Communication

Presented by: Nick Cagliuso, PhD, MPH, Senior Advisor of Emergency Management , MDB Inc.

Adult learners, with their myriad experiences, require unique training approaches from which they can translate and apply their learnings to solve real world problems.

In this interactive and practical professional development workshop, participants will explore highly usable, tactical steps and skills necessary to create, optimize, implement, and evaluate training for adult learners, including:

1. Knowing your adult learning audience (better than they know themselves.)

2. Understanding how actively engaging adult learners through storytelling increases interest (and how what's interesting drives learning.)

3. Realizing that imperfect and incomplete training approaches can pique adult learner interest (better than flawless and whole approaches.)

4. Minimizing the use of rigid training techniques in favor of more flexible models.

5. Providing adult learners with simple, practical, and useful tools and encouraging them to decide how to use them to best process information.

Key Principles in Hiring
AHEPP Professional Standard: Personnel Management

Presented by: Keith Hansen, Co-Director of the Association of Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Professionals
This workshop will describe basic principles of hiring like how to write job descriptions, advertising, and effective interviewing (yes, this can be done wrong!).  The “work” part of the session will be when you develop at least part of a position description as well as the interview questions for the position.  Bring an idea for a “new hire” and you will walk out with a partially completed hiring process!
