Capturing the Range of Learning Implications for Disaster Health in a Resource Constrained Future
Altman, B., Strauss-Riggs, K. and Schor, K. (2012). Capturing the Range of Learning: Implications for Disaster Health in a Resource Constrained Future. National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health.
The authors present recommendations for ensuring a trained workforce, even when faced with resource constraints, by focusing training on learning required to improve performance, and ensuring multiple paths to learning. They note the value of informal learning opportunities outside of the classroom setting, and how such learning is less resource intensive than formal learning sessions.
