Abstract

In the decade since the original development of crisis standards of care (CSC) via the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, multiple legal/policy concerns have arisen, centered on 2 key questions: (1) what legal “triggers” justify shifts to CSC?; and (2) what evidence substantiates critical medical/ public health choices?

Keywords: emergency preparedness, crisis, standards, care, legal, law, policy, triggers, emergency, public health, declaration, liability, efficacy, crisis
