Pincock, L.L, Montello, M.J., Tarosky, M.J., et al. (2011). Pharmacist Readiness Roles for Emergency Preparedness. (Requires log in to Medscape). American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy. 68(7):620-623.

The authors describe the various roles pharmacists could have in disaster readiness and divide them into two categories: "clinical" and "other." Clinical roles would primarily be fulfilled by ambulatory care readiness pharmacists, pharmacotherapy readiness pharmacists, and critical care readiness pharmacists. The "other" category includes specialized clinical roles and nonclinical activities carried out by weapons of mass destruction/pandemic readiness pharmacists, pharmacy readiness logisticians, and pharmacist readiness managers.
