Priest, C. and Stryckman, B. (2015). Identifying Indirect Benefits of Federal Health Care Emergency Preparedness Grant Funding to Coalitions: A Content Analysis. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 9(6):704-11.
The authors reviewed data from telephone interviews conducted with regional stakeholders from several healthcare coalitions to assess their opinions on the benefits of federal preparedness funding. Overall, participants noted dual-use technology and programs and the positive effect of relationships on day-to-day operations as primary indirect benefits; the authors emphasized the need for additional research on return on investment from federal grant funding.
