ERPO Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Centers (PERRCs) – Preparedness and Emergency Response Publication Repository


PERRC Peer-Reviewed Publications Listed by Institute of Medicine Priorities

The research conducted at PERRCs address several of the research priorities recommended by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). PERRC publications are listed below under the related IOM research priority. The findings from these projects will be used to help improve public health practice for preparedness and emergency response planning and policies at the local, state, federal and tribal levels.

Enhance the Usefulness of Training:


Improve Communications in Preparedness and Response:


Create and Maintain Sustainable Preparedness and Response Systems:

Generate Criteria and Metrics to Measure Effectiveness and Efficiency:
