Disaster and Emergency Preparedness
As you have been learning this week, today’s health care leaders recognize the need for greater coordination within the U.S. health care delivery system, and the need for effective future planning. These two approaches are especially critical for disaster and emergency preparedness.
Review the information presented in the Learning Resources, and consider the following questions:
- Why is it important to integrate organizational, community, state, and national efforts for emergency and disaster preparedness?
- How does the current state of the U.S. health care delivery system promote or prevent coordinated efforts for disaster and emergency preparedness?
- How could you, as a health care administrator, support integrated and future-focused efforts for disaster and emergency preparedness?
