Corporate Authors:National Center for Environmental Health (U.S.). Environmental Hazards and Health Effects. Health Studies Branch.
Description:Module one: Epidemiologic response to disasters -- Module two: Disaster response rapid needs assessment -- Module three: Disaster surveillance methods.
The Disaster Preparedness and Response Training Course has three modules. The course also has a final comprehensive capstone activity where learners apply the knowledge and skills learned in the course. After completing all three modules, you will have a better understanding of the disaster-related rapid needs assessments and surveillance necessary to support responses to disasters and other public health emergencies.
The course uses a “self-paced,” learner-focused format. The majority of the instructional content for the module is contained in a Participant Workbook. Learners will read through the Participant Workbook individually and stop at specified points to discuss key points and practice exercises with a mentor or a facilitator. This self-paced format allows learners to complete the training at their own pace. It is expected that a mentor or facilitator will meet with the learner(s) periodically to review key points and address any questions. It is up to the learner and the facilitator to schedule meeting times. Depending on the number of learners, the facilitator might wish to schedule group sessions or meet individually with each learner.
This Facilitator Guide provides suggestions on how to facilitate discussions with learners around key concepts and lessons learned. The Facilitator Guide also provides suggested answers for the practice exercises and case studies included throughout the course
The target audience is 2nd year Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents (fellows) and alumni, as well as other health professionals associated with ministries of health who are responsible for disaster preparedness and response initiatives.
