This document contains a template that public health agencies can use to conduct a workshop to improve key aspects of Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) planning: pediatric dispensing, altered standards of care, and allocation of scarce resources. The template is designed to support health departments in both identifying gaps and developing concrete strategies for addressing those gaps. The template is part of a larger set of tools developed by RAND that states and localities can use to assess and improve SNS readiness. Since 2006, RAND has been working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of the Strategic National Stockpile to develop assessments of jurisdictions' SNS-related capabilities.
