One-day in-action review (IAR) protocol in the context of COVID-19
This document aims to support the implementation of in-action reviews (IARs) focused on the public health response to COVID-19. IARs seek to identify best practice and lessons learned, while applying these insights in a tighter time-scale to improve the outcome of an ongoing response. In-action reviews may also include a ‘forward-look’ to assess strategic options in the upcoming phases of the pandemic.
This document is designed to complement existing ECDC and World Health Organization (WHO) documentation on after-action Reviews (AARs) and IARs, and it draws on ECDC guidance documents related to emergency preparedness planning and response - in particular those published in the context of COVID-19.
