Week 5: Disaster and Communicable Disease Preparedness

Preparing for disasters, terrorist threats, or communicable disease outbreaks is an important part of public health nursing. Visit the websites http://www.ready.gov (Links to an external site.) and http://www.ready.gov/pandemic (Links to an external site.). Review the steps for being prepared for a disaster or pandemic.

  • Choose a natural or man-made disaster that could impact your community and discuss how a CHN can help the community to prepare or respond to this disaster.
  • Choose a potential infectious disease outbreak and discuss how a CHN can help to prevent or respond to an outbreak.
  • How well is your community prepared for a potential outbreak or disaster?
