  • Description:
    Prepared by the RAND Safety and Justice Program for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

    The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) launched the Disaster Science Research Initiative (DSRI) in 2014 to develop an approach for "timely, scalable, scientifically sound responder-based research that can feasibly be implemented before, during, and after a large-scale disaster." As part of this initiative, NIOSH convened a workshop in July of 2014 to help define research questions, identify key definitions and themes related to DSR, discuss the potential roles DSRI could play in this area, and address other issues associated with building a disaster science research program. This report summarizes the discussions in the workshop in terms of a set of central themes in disaster science research, suggests possible roles NIOSH can play in these emerging and important areas, and describes possible next steps for the DSRI.

    Based on both the workshop results and the supplemental literature, we have identified six prominent themes that appear to be key considerations in framing disaster science research questions.

    These are:

    • Defining emergency responders and their roles

    • Identifying priority research areas

    • Partnerships

    • Facilitating DSR logistics

    • Ethical concerns in DSR

    • Ensuring the uptake and use of DSR
