Hanfling, D., Altevogt, B.M., Viswanathan, K., and Gostin, L.O. (eds.). (2012). Crisis Standards of Care: A Systems Framework for Catastrophic Disaster Response. Institute of Medicine. National Academies Press.
This foundational report of crisis standards of care philosophy and planning was designed to help authorities operationalize the concepts first developed in the 2009 Institute of Medicine Report titled, “Guidance for Establishing Crisis Standards of Care for Use in Disaster Situations: A Letter Report.” It provides practical templates and toolkits for the emergency response disciplines and emphasizes the importance of a systems framework. This report also includes a “public engagement” template specifically to guide communities in hosting meetings and encourages the inclusion of citizens in their policy process.

The IOM report looks intimidating, but is broken into sections based on discipline - one of the best ways to approach it is to look at the end of your relevant section at the outline of the 'functions' - if you're already done with some of them you can move on to the next and reference back in the text for further details on ones where you haven't made enough progress
