Health Care Facility Climate Change Resiliency Toolkit


This tool kit has been developed to help health care facilities access their resiliency to climate change. The toolkit includes three components: Facilitator’s guide, a presentation which facilitators can tailor to the specific needs of their health care facilities. The presentation outlines instructions for conducting the resiliency assessment and can be used to facilitate the assessment discussion, engage facility officials, and capture information. The Resource Guide is intended to be an educational resource for those looking for more infromation about climate change, heatlh care, and resiliency. It provides summaries and references for a wide range of accessible resources on topics including emergency, management, supply chain management, health services, facilities management, and infrastructure. The Assessment checklist includes questions in many areas, such as emergency management, facilities management, health care services, and supply chain management. Completion of the assessment checklists by officials with knowledge and experience in these areas will increase awareness and inform resiliency activities.
