Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC): Disaster Health Literature
The core purpose of the Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) is to develop and provide access to health information resources and technology for disaster and public health emergency preparedness, response, and recovery. During a disaster, decisions are made quickly, based on the information available. This session will provide a brief overview of the essential resources needed to provide health-related information services for supporting disaster preparedness, response, and recovery workforce.
The session will cover key sources from the U.S. National Library of Medicine® (NLM), including “Disaster Lit®: Database for Disaster Medicine and Public Health” and the “Disaster Health Information Search Guide”.
After completing this session, you will be able to:
- Recognize when disaster health information is needed
- Distinguish categories of disaster health information
- Identify sources to locate disaster health information
