NURS 7609 - DISASTER MANAGEMENT FOR PUBLIC HEALTH/COMMUNITY HEALTH NURSING

[3 Credits]
This course is focused on the restoration of the public’s health as a result of a disaster using an all hazards approach. The public health/community health nurse, from a population perspective, will be able to plan and prepare for the disaster response, regardless of the cause. The needs of specific populations and aggregates i.e., children or the elderly are addressed, including physical and psychological and environmental factors. Triage, leadership, crisis communication, media access, legal and ethical issues, and available local and national health services are identified as part of program planning, intervention and evaluation.
