What Clinicians Know About Disaster Preparedness

Aired on August 8th, 2017


General Overview

The United States needs a healthcare and public health workforce that possesses the knowledge, skills, and abilities to respond to any disaster or public health emergency in a timely and appropriate manner. The level of readiness and willingness to participate is critical to the success of any large-scale disaster response. The role of healthcare professionals across a broad range of specialties and during all phases of a disaster should be understood as disaster competence will be critical to population outcomes. The absence of a clearly articulated vision and framework for disaster education is not without consequences. In conducting interviews regarding nursing programs as well as with experts we have found that there is indeed an absence of such frameworks and education and have created a toolkit to help address gaps.

In addition to discussing the developed toolkit we will examine the materials currently covered by universities, and discuss research on this topic.
