Description

The public health community plays a vital role in identifying, responding to, containing, and recovering from emergencies. This book will introduce your students to the important and timely field of public health preparedness. The book presupposes no previous exposure to the concepts, yet provides enough depth for students who may have advanced knowledge. Divided into four parts, Public Health Preparedness explores: principles of public health preparedness; defining the problem; creating an infrastructure; and solving problems. Recent and current topics are examined such as weapons of mass destruction; the 9/11 commission findings; the National Incident Management System, and biosecurity. Part of the Jones & Bartlett Learning Essential Public Health series. Learn more at www.essentialpublichealth.com. Looking for more real-life evidence?
