Emergency Preparedness and Community Coalitions Opportunities and Challenges
Carrier, E., Yee, T., Cross, D., and Samuel, D. (2012). Emergency Preparedness and Community Coalitions: Opportunities and Challenges. (Abstract only.) Research Brief. (24):1-9.
This article discusses ways to broaden emergency preparedness coalition membership of critical partners, such as nursing homes and primary care providers, by providing incentives for more stakeholders to join existing coalitions or building preparedness into activities providers are already participating in. The authors advocate for developing outcomes-based measures of success as opposed to using membership and plan development status.
