Webinar: A New Tool for Complex-Decision-Making by Public Health Officials in All-Hazards Preparedness & Response

This ASPH webinar will be held on September 13, 2012, 10:00 – 11:00 AM PDT. It will focus on describing the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method and how it can be used in emergency preparedness and response. AHP was developed to help with complex decision-making. It can help users set priorities, allocate resources, improve communications, evaluate alternative solutions, and justify and defend recommendations.

The CDC-funded CalPrepare Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center (PERRC) is making software based on AHP available to public health professionals. The webinar will also discuss this software and some applications that demonstrate how it can be used in research and practice. Dr. Ferenc Dalnoki-Veress of PERRC and Scientist-in-Residence & Adjunct Professor at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) Monterey Institute of International Studies, will be the featured speaker.
