Disaster Preparedness Training for Tribal Leaders

Peate, W. and Mullins, J. (2008). Disaster Preparedness Training for Tribal Leaders. Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology. 3:2.

The authors describe a 1.5 day training session delivered regionally and built upon themes such as tribal sovereignty, and the understanding that preparedness is not a new concept for Native Americans. Three modules covered the roles of public health, bio-terrorism and public health, and community emergency preparedness and response. The authors list challenges to implementing the training and recommendations for refining the curriculum.
