Abstract:

"Over the past century, there have been four pandemics: 1918, 1957, 1968 and 2009. In the case of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, and in all future cases, appropriate communications and education will ensure the public, health care professionals and stakeholders know how to best protect their health and the health of others. It will also inspire continued confidence in the Province's response to the pandemic situation. B.C.'s Pandemic Communications Plan incorporates procedures and methods to address the critical elements of communication. It provides templates and guidelines to best enable the provincial government to be timely, accurate and efficient in its communications both externally with the public and stakeholders, and internally within ministries and the B.C. public service."--Executive summary, p. 4.
