The Medical Emergency Distribution System (MEDS) plan, or hybrids of the plan, has been utilized several times in recent years. The MEDS plan calls for municipal first responders to run Points of Dispensing (PODs) under guidance from HEALTH. We need medical professionals to ensure safety of the community during these public health emergencies. This 1-hour seminar is specifically geared towards doctors, nurses, and pharmacists to increase awareness of this vital and potentially lifesaving model that the state intends to use during a public health emergency. Educational Objectives At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to: 1. Describe the Medical Emergency Distribution System (MEDS) in Rhode Island and identify examples of when MEDS has been utilized in Rhode Island 2. Describe the concept of Points-of-Dispensing (POD) including the flow and function of a POD 3.
