Practice holistic, evidence-based care including diverse and underserved individuals, families, communities, and populations:
(Comp 7m) Use clinical judgment and decision-making skills in appropriate, timely nursing care during disaster, mass casualty, and other emergency situations.
This assignment requires the student to interview a city official (policeman, city administrator, mayor, ambulance director, or city manager) from your community.
Develop and implement ten interview questions to evaluate your community’s
Emergency Disaster Plan (Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan).
Evaluate the Disaster Plan/Policy for completeness and clarity versus ambiguity.
Student will develop a 4-5-page paper (APA format, minimum 5 references) that critiques the selected community disaster plan/policy. In the paper, the students will answer the following:
List interview questions and summarize in 1-2 paragraphs the challenges of the interview, interview question responses, and any positive outcomes from the interview experience.
Identify 3 areas for improvement/clarification in the policy and provide specific recommendations. If the policy is considered strong, and weaknesses are not observed, students should instead identify 3 areas of strength and provide rationale.
Consider the usefulness and practicality of the disaster plan/policy that was
evaluated. Does the policy meet the intentions of the legislation regarding disaster/emergency preparedness policies? Why or why not?
An introduction and conclusion to the paper is required.
