Kennedy, B., Carson, D., and Garr, D. (2009). South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium Disaster Preparedness and Response Training Network: An Emerging Partner in Preparedness Training. (Abstract only.) Journal of Public Health Management and Practice. 15(2 Suppl):S13-9.
The authors describe a project to design, and then test the effectiveness and acceptability of disaster preparedness training curricula with thought leaders from across 4 states. From this experience, they recommend that “preparedness training for community-based practitioners needs to be concise and professionally relevant,” and “integrated into existing healthcare professions education programs and continuing education offerings.”
