Assessment of Psychological Preparedness and Emergency Response Willingness of Local Public Health Department and Hospital Workers

Errett, N., Barnett, D., Thompson, C., et al. (2012). Assessment of Psychological Preparedness and Emergency Response Willingness of Local Public Health Department and Hospital Workers. (Abstract only.) International Journal of Emergency Mental Health. 14(2):125-33.
The authors surveyed hospital and public health workers to assess their willingness to respond to a pandemic influenza emergency scenario and a radiological 'dirty' bomb scenario. They found that respondents that felt psychologically prepared were more willing to respond, and self-reported willingness to respond was influenced by perceived self-efficacy and perceived family preparedness.
