Disaster-Related Physical and Mental Health A Role for the Family Physician
Freedy, J., and Simpson, W. (2007). Disaster-Related Physical and Mental Health: A Role for the Family Physician. American Family Physician. 75(6): 841-846.
The authors encourage family physicians to educate themselves about disaster-related physical and mental health threats, and list common health outcomes under both domains. They emphasize the need for primary care providers to be able to anticipate increased resource use and screen for mental health impacts in their affected patients for a long time after the initial event.
