Summary note:
"Emergency Public Health: Preparedness and Response presents public health professionals, policymakers, first responders, and emergency healthcare providers with a unique and practical framework for disaster response planning at local, state, and national levels." "With threats to the population ever-present, public health professionals today are being required to meet increasing expectations for emergency preparedness, response, and interagency cooperation when disaster strikes. Emergency Public Health is the first book of its kind to systematically address these issues in a range of public health emergencies brought on by natural calamity, terrorism, industrial accident, or infectious disease." "Authored by experts with diverse backgrounds in emergency medicine and public health, each chapter of Emergency Public Health features historical perspectives on a public health crisis, an analysis of preparedness, and a practical, relevant case study on the emergency response."--BOOK JACKET.
