Addressing Preparedness Challenges for Children in Public Health Emergencies

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at 1pm EST.

Fireman with a baby in his hands Public health emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere. Natural disasters, epidemics, and terrorist attacks that have occurred in recent years have underscored the importance of local, state, and federal public health systems in preparing for potential health threats. Public health emergencies, such as Hurricane Katrina, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, and 9/11 have shown that children have different needs than adults, and require special attention, such as pediatric-focused care. However, responses to past events also show that the unique needs of children have not been adequately addressed in the planning process.

This session of Grand Rounds will discuss strategies to address the unique vulnerabilities of children in every stage of emergency planning. Presenters will also highlight the strong progress that has been made in pediatric disaster readiness as well as the collaboration that is still needed between public health professionals and pediatric care providers to improve the outcomes for children during emergencies.
