Regional Symposium: Disaster Summit: Magnitude 9 Cascadia Earthquake

This symposium will provide a means to connect librarians, emergency responders, medical personnel and public health workers to health information resources and technology for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Experts from various disciplines will provide lectures and small breakout sessions on preparedness planning, earthquakes and environmental issues, NN/LM disaster information management resources, disaster-related clinical care issues, and issues pertaining to special populations during disasters. Expected outcomes are increased familiarity with disaster issues and resources specific to the Pacific Northwest, increased knowledge about best practices in disaster information management and opportunities for cooperation and services that librarians can offer to emergency planners; and increased awareness of emergency preparedness and response tools offered by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.
