Retrospective Cohort Study of Responders Training and System Performance
The researchers propose that extending “lessons learned” response assessments to training histories of individual responders will identify what training modalities contribute to improved response.
Effectiveness of Simulated Disaster Response Scenarios
The researchers propose that engaging inter-professional health students in realistic simulated disaster response scenarios will improve system performance and quality disaster response through the acquisition of knowledge and team-based skills.
Creating High Reliability Teams for Public Health Preparedness
The researchers propose that interdisciplinary team effectiveness can be learned during in situ simulations, and performance problems and efficiencies can be identified and categorized into specific groups.
Using Collaborative Virtual Environments in Preparedness and Emergency Response Planning
The researchers propose that using a CVE will improve strategies, methods, and outcomes in emergency response for general and vulnerable populations, as well as daily public health practice.
