Disaster Management Among Pediatric Surgeons: Preparedness, Training and Involvement

Chokshi, N., Behar, S., Nager, A., et al. (2008). Disaster Management Among Pediatric Surgeons: Preparedness, Training and Involvement. (Abstract only.) American Journal of Disaster Medicine. 3(1):5-14.

The authors discuss the results of an anonymous survey of American Pediatric Surgical Association members in 2007, which found that while 77% felt "definitely responsible" for assisting after a disaster, only 24% felt "definitely prepared" to do so. The authors listed factors associated with higher levels of preparedness and emphasized the need for more training.
