This paper discusses an international project to survey “the current provision of disaster medicine education, the design considerations for a Disaster E-Health (DEH) program for health professionals, the key curriculum topics, and the optimal delivery mode.” The authors define DEH as “the application of eHealth technologies to assist the prognosis and treatment of the sick and injured in a disaster and to support appropriate care in the post-disaster situation.”
