Siegal, D., Strauss-Riggs, K. et al. (2014). Prioritization of Pediatric CBRNE Disaster Education and Training Needs. Clinical Pediatric Emergency Medicine. 15(4):309-317.
This article summarizes the 2011 Pediatric Disaster Preparedness Conference convened by the National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health. Multidisciplinary subject matter experts identified and prioritized roles in need of training in three settings: EMS/first responder, hospitals, and ambulatory care. For each role in each setting, experts identified training topics, key content, and level of training required. The authors suggest that a steering committee oversee development and implementation of related curriculum.
