Public health officials can play a huge part in disaster planning and emergency preparedness.
Analyze disaster response and emergency preparedness:
Identify nursing roles and responsibilities during each phase of disaster management. Consider:
Evaluate your community: Imagine Los Angeles or state’s plan of California for preparedness and disaster management:
Does it include provisions for each phase of preparedness and disaster planning?
Does it clearly account for community needs?
Does the plan include evidence of thought beyond the written report?
Is there evidence of a record keeping system for resources, treatment, and identification of victims?
Are there redundancies built into the plan should one option fail?
Are backup plans in place?
Analyze the plan for addressing mass casualty situations.
Include at least two peer-reviewed and two evidence-based reference, and an APA-formatted reference page.
Format your assignment as one of the following:
7- to 10-slide presentation (equivalent to 350-525 word paper)
