Baker, L.R. and Baker, M.D. (2010). Disaster Preparedness among Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs. Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 4(3):240-5.
This study examined the level of personal disaster preparedness among families with children with special healthcare needs in relation to the general population, and explored whether special healthcare needs or perception of disaster risk affects preparedness levels. Results indicated that in spite of significant special healthcare needs and concern about disasters, families remain unprepared for a disaster event.
