This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).
Preparing for disasters, terrorist threats, or communicable disease outbreaks is an important part of public health nursing.
professor’s comment: Hello Class,
The Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) website provides excellent information through their own Be Prepared web page for the National Preparedness Month every September and it’s a great resource to share as we are focusing on Disaster Preparedness in this discussion.
Post 9/11 the state health department had the county health departments develop Homeland Security Bioterrorism task forces to educate the community on how to prepare for a natural or other disaster. Health Departments developed teams of staff and invited key stakeholders from the community level to participate. One of the criteria to memberships was to demonstrate that each staff/stakeholder had a personal plan so when called to duty there were no worries about personal issues.
Now, ask yourself do you have a plan? Is this a sound plan and what needs to be part of the plan?
Here is a web site for you to answer some of those questions and prepare. Please share your thoughts and what you found on the site, see you in class!
Please feel free to address these questions in your response.
