CE Hours: 0.25 Session Type: Prerecorded Educational Courses
Learning Objective 1:
Discuss the impact that disasters may have on the disabled community; describe anticipated concerns as well as the experiences of disabled caregivers to a pediatric victim in a large scale in-situ disaster simulation
Learning Objective 2:
Review evaluation methods to identify challenges faced by the disabled population in a large scale in-situ disaster simulation
Learning Objective 3:
Understand and review findings, identify lessons learned and policy changes to improve care of families with disabled members as a result of an in situ disaster simulation
This course is a general overview of the topic.
Caring for children who have parents with a physical disability in times of crisis, includes particular care and communication challenges. These unique care contexts are not typically addressed in traditional educational programs, and practitioners and learners are often left underprepared. We will review a large scale simulation involving persons with physical disabilities as simulated caregivers for pediatric victims of a disaster.
