20-204: Consultancy - Webinar Speaker
Country:Global
Department:Humanitarian Response
  
Essential Job Duties/Scope of Work:


International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.

Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization.  Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in areas worldwide.  By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at high risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.

1. BACKGROUND TO THE ASSIGNMENT:

Florida’s Community Health Centers (CHCs) are playing a significant role in the statewide response to the COVID-19 pandemic. CHCs have rapidly expanded capacity for testing, having tested over 330,000 patients to date; (this number is based on 80% of health centers reporting, with the true number likely much higher). CHCs have also engaged with community response partners, and shifted daily operations to ensure continuity of care for vulnerable patient populations. While the COVID pandemic continues, CHCs are also in preparedness mode for the current hurricane season, among other ongoing hazards impacting the state. To support FACHC members, International Medical Corps seeks to develop two engagement webinars to provide evidence-based information on crisis emergency risk communication and medical surge, while also highlighting recent successes of FACHC members.

In 2019, International Medical Corps & FACHC partnered to provide several health centers with Emerging Infectious Disease training, delivering content that had proved to be timely and very applicable in their response to the ongoing public health emergency. Building upon International Medical Corps’ relationship with FACHC, we will hold webinars during the month of October aimed to prepare FQHCs for potential surge due to the commingled influenza and COVID-19 season. Both webinars will utilize materials from International Medical Corps’ proprietary Health Center Management of Emerging Infectious Disease training. These sessions will be recorded for future viewing.

2. PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT:

Speakers will be responsible for presenting a 20-30-minute presentation on health and medical preparedness for FQHCs. Presentations will be recorded and posted on the International Medical Corps website and state primary care association website. Webinar participants are likely to include staff from federally qualified health centers (FQHCs).

 

3. SCOPE OF THE ASSIGNMENT:

  • Speaker will participate in planning call and test run with the ERU Training & Operations Officer prior to webinar.
  • Speaker will learn material for 20-30 minute PPT-based presentation, and make relevant adjustments to content in conjunction with ERU Training Officer as needed.
  • Speaker will deliver presentation during live webinar, and prepare for Q & A session at end of presentation.

 

4. DELIVERABLES DESCRIPTION:

  • Participate in planning call and test run with ERU Training & Operations Officer.
  • Learn material for 20-30 minute PPT based presentation
