AFEM Toolkit of Emergency Care Advocacy Materials
Following repeated requests for advocacy support, AFEM have been working very hard to prepare a toolkit of Emergency Care advocacy materials. We are delighted to announce that these are now ready for dissemination!
The goal of these materials is to help support anyone wishing to advocate for continued development of Emergency Care in their region: to national or local governments, academic institutions, and / or healthcare facilities.
The toolkit has several components and includes:
- Communication tools: a pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation and explanation.
- Guidelines: a "How to do Advocacy" guideline, with accompanying visual material.
- Resources: an Acute Care fact sheet explain in simple form the main reasons for emergency care development; a PowerPoint presentation about AFEM and its activities; target audience survey questions, and other relevant reading.
Anyone who would like to use these materials to help them lobby for better emergency care in their region is welcome to contact AFEM. Rather than publishing any single, generic version, AFEM will work with individual parties to shape a message specific to a task and audience. Messaging can, for example, be tailored toward an audience of policy makers, clinicians, or lay-people.
Feel free to download and use this Acute Care Fact Sheet and list of relevant references as a conversation starter:
