This document provides a list of issues that are considered by the contributors as essential themes that must be tackled in all CPPs for hospitals. Each issue represents concepts and problems that are likely to be universally present in all critical situations, emergency or disasters and cannot be set aside when drafting the CPP. The document provides specific measures and hints for preparedness in the event of a communicable disease epidemic, such as the possible influenza pandemic
