121. Training Community Health Workers to Enhance Disaster Resilience. (PubMed)

Training Community Health Workers to Enhance Disaster Resilience. Community health workers (CHWs) have significant potential to contribute to public health in the United States by promoting disaster preparedness, speeding postdisaster recovery, and building disaster resilience in their communities. To maximize this potential, however, they must undergo rigorous and relevant training. As part of the Gulf Region Health Outreach Program, an appropriate curriculum was developed and delivered (...) as additional research and conceptual development, we offer recommendations aimed at expanding and refining CHW training curricula in the areas of chronic disease, psychosocial symptoms, community resilience, and environmental health. In addition to curriculum changes, we review policy implications aimed at promoting and facilitating the inclusion of CHWs in disaster response and recovery teams.

122. Natural disasters in a time of telemedicine

, and was very impressed that Teladoc was receptive to the suggestion for future development. From Katrina to Harvey, the health care technology landscape has changed drastically. The platforms for telemedicine are already in the mainstream market as a way to see patients. There is productive debate about urgent care vs. primary care models of practice, but in the arena of emergency relief, the urgent care applications have the potential to change the way we approach natural disaster response. The staff (...) of Houston, flew to another airport and drove a few hours back to the flood.

I have infinite faith that doctors will not abandon their patients in the hospital, but a new problem emerges as the rain stops. What about the 30,000 displaced people who are seeking shelter in standing water, a known public health risk? Recently, Teladoc made the historic move to provide

Monitoring and evaluation of disaster response efforts undertaken by local health departments: a rapid realist review. Local health departments are often at the forefront of a disaster response, attending to the immediate trauma inflicted by the disaster and also the long term health consequences. As the frequency and severity of disasters are projected to rise, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) efforts are critical to help local health departments consolidate past experiences and improve future (...) response efforts. Local health departments often conduct M&E work post disaster, however, many of these efforts fail to improve response procedures.We undertook a rapid realist review (RRR) to examine why M&E efforts undertaken by local health departments do not always result in improved disaster response efforts. We aimed to complement existing frameworks by focusing on the most basic and pragmatic steps of a M&E cycle targeted towards continuous system improvements. For these purposes, we developed

DSM-5 and ICD-11 as competing models of PTSD in preadolescent children exposed to a natural disaster: assessing validity and co-occurring symptomatology Background: Major revisions have been made to the DSM and ICD models of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, it is not known whether these models fit children's post-trauma responses, even though children are a vulnerable population following disasters. Objective: Using data from Hurricane Ike, we examined how well trauma-exposed (...) children's symptoms fit the DSM-IV, DSM-5 and ICD-11 models, and whether the models varied by gender. We also evaluated whether elevated symptoms of depression and anxiety characterized children meeting PTSD criteria based on DSM-5 and ICD-11. Method: Eight-months post-disaster, children (N = 327, 7-11 years) affected by Hurricane Ike completed measures of PTSD, anxiety and depression. Algorithms approximated a PTSD diagnosis based on DSM-5 and ICD-11 models. Results: Using confirmatory factor analysis
