Emergency Preparedness
City: Toronto
Format: In Person; Webinar

Note: This is an open invitation, and may be forwarded to interested parties.

Emergency response is classically described in three (3) phases: preparation, response, and recovery. Research on public health workers' activities during a disaster has primarily focused on their actions during the acute response phase. Less attention, however, has been paid to perceptions of this workforce during the recovery phase. This presentation will present novel findings from an ongoing mixed-methods research study on public health workers' sense of efficacy toward performance of disaster recovery activities. The presentation will examine data from local health departments in a variety of Hurricane Sandy-impacted U.S. jurisdictions from the states of Maryland and New Jersey. Dr. Barnett will also address the broader public health implications of these findings for current and future disaster recovery efforts.
