Assessing Veterinary Practice and Practitioner Preparedness for Natural and Man-Made Disasters

Garcia, L., Stefanou, C., Huston, C., et al. (2022). Assessing Veterinary Practice and Practitioner Preparedness for Natural and Man-Made Disasters. Journal of Veterinary Medical Education. 49(6):733-739
The authors surveyed Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) executives to better understand the level of disaster preparedness training provided to veterinary students. Overall, most respondents did not receive this type of training, yet they felt “somewhat prepared for the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic” and “were in compliance with most of AVMA recommendations” despite not having formal training. The authors suggest disaster preparedness and response be part of veterinarian core training and emphasize the need for more research on larger samples.
