Goodhue, C., Burke, R., Ferrer, R., et al. (2012). Willingness to Respond in a Disaster: A Pediatric Nurse Practitioner National Survey. (Abstract only.) Journal of Pediatric Health Care. 26(4):e7-20.
The authors conducted a national survey of pediatric nurse practitioners to learn about their personal preparedness plans, disaster training, prior disaster experience, and likelihood of responding in the event of a disaster. They found that those who were male, had prior military experience and disaster training, and had a defined role in response plans were most likely to respond during a disaster.
