Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication in a Pandemic A Model for Building Capacity and Resilience of Minority Communities
Crouse Quinn, S. (2008). Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication in a Pandemic: A Model for Building Capacity and Resilience of Minority Communities. (Abstract only.) Health Promotion Practice 9(4 Suppl):18S-25S.
The author addresses the challenges public health agencies have when communicating risk to certain populations during a pandemic (e.g., distrust of government, existing health disparities). The author also suggests the use of a risk communication strategy based on community engagement, disaster risk education, and crisis and emergency risk communication to help prepare minority communities and government agencies to prepare, respond, and work together in a pandemic.
