Gallardo, A., Djalali, A., Foletti, M., and Ragazzoni, L. (2015). Core Competencies in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance: A Systematic Review. Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 9(4):430-439.
The authors discuss peer-reviewed studies to “identify existing competency sets for disaster management and humanitarian assistance that would serve as guidance for the development of a common disaster curriculum” and conclude that variability in terminology, focus, and priorities effectively preclude common competencies at present.
