Everyone knows what happened when the Titanic went down. Jack held on but eventually succumbed while Rose held on and went on to make a new life for heself. We all know what the danger was facing the Titanic... or do we? What would have happened if a few people had organized a response using modern technicques, would more people have survived? How can Public Health utilize Lessons Learned from one response and enhance the next? One of the most famous disasters ever…. so how does Lessons Learned from the Titanic play a role in modern day public health? Like the Titanic, public health deals with people from all over the world, speaking many different languages and from many different cultures. The Titanic had one of the modern marvels of the world at the time but it wasn’t used effectively. Pressures were brought to bear from above which helped doom the Titanic. Public health has pressure being brought to bear every day! And like the Titanic, learning from responses can lead to better responses in the future. Vulnerable populations, 'worried well', making use of volunteers and planning the response are all issues that are shared with public health and the Titanic. In the presentation, the audience gets to think as a part of the crew or passengers on board the Titanic, and complete a Lessons Learned exercise based on the Titanic scenario! This presentation provides a humorous yet realistic based approach to understanding how public health fits into the NIMS system, and how the public health response can be enhanced. It ends with a practical application of Lessons Learned from the Titanic and then applies them to current public health emergency responses. Ultimately, the participants will have a Lessons Learned template that can be used in their public health work. A combination of video vignettes, and audience participation will leave attendees laughing and more confident on how to apply these modern emergency management techniquesto everyday life.
