Henkel, P.J. and Marvanova, M. (2020). Basic Disaster Preparedness of Rural Community Pharmacies in 5 States. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 14(3):329-334.
The authors of this study conducted a telephone survey with community pharmacies in three rural areas (North and South Dakota, West Virginia, and Southern Oregon/Northern California) regarding their level of disaster preparedness. Pharmacists in rural, low-income, or areas with higher levels of elderly residents reported lower levels of basic preparedness.
