Inclusive Just-in-Time Training (I-JITT) for Mass Prophylaxis/POD Operations is a comprehensive and systematic toolkit designed to support individuals leading and responding to a public health emergency. Its approach to training is aligned with best practice from the field of adult learning theory.

The toolkit consists of five components: Implementation Instructions for the Preparedness Planner, an Operational Briefing Checklist for the Mass Prophylaxis/POD Supervisor, a Field Training Guide for Team Leaders (complete with Job Action Sheets), a “Go-Guide” job aide for surge responders to utilize during an incident, and a short evaluation form to evaluate the I-JITT approach.

The material was created from a variety of government, university, and private foundation sources specializing in WMD emergency preparedness. It is targeted at three distinct audiences involved in emergency response: public health staff, medical ER staff, and fire/first responders. It also contains a training section for trainers who may present the material as provided, or may customize from the various sections to emphasize certain emergency response concepts as needed. Users should first review the README file, study the tutorial modules in Appendix A, step through the training presentation slides in the folder for their particular background interest, then take the post-training tests in Appendix B.
