Community and Population Health
The Role of the Nurse in Emergency Preparedness
Community health emergencies may involve different types of events such as tornado, an infectious disease, or an explosion. This module will enable you to explore a community health emergency and analyze how the emergency was handled, and determine the impact the emergency had on the population, individuals,
groups, and society. Nursing responsibilities, education and activities in emergency preparedness are examined along with their role in primary, secondary and tertiary prevention.
