  • Being Both Helpers and Victims: Health Professionals' Experiences of Working During a Natural Disaster. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Jan 03; :1-7
  • Hugelius K, Adolfsson A, … Gifford M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Being a health professional during a natural disaster was a multi-faceted, powerful, and ambiguous experience of being part of the response system at the same time as being a survivor of the disaster. Personal values and altruistic motives as well as social aspects and stress-coping strategies to reach a balance between acceptance and control were important elements of the experience. Based on these findings, implications for disaster training and response strategies are suggested. Hugelius K , Adolfsson A , Örtenwall P , Gifford M . Being both helpers and victims: health professionals' experiences of working during a natural disaster. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(2):1-7.
  • Why do Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Professionals Leave EMS? [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016; 31(S1):S105-S111
  • Blau G, Chapman SA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Given the anticipated increased demand for EMS professionals in the next decade, continued study of issues associated with retention is strongly recommended. Some specific recommendations and suggestions for promoting retention are provided. Blau G , Chapman SA . Why do Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals leave EMS? Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s105-s111.
  • Improving Pediatric Education for Emergency Medical Services Providers: A Qualitative Study. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 22; :1-7
  • Brown SA, Hayden TC, … Kim IK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Focus groups identified four themes surrounding preparation of EMS personnel for providing care to pediatric patients. These themes can guide future educational interventions for EMS to improve pediatric prehospital care. Brown SA , Hayden TC , Randell KA , Rappaport L , Stevenson MD , Kim IK . Improving pediatric education for Emergency Medical Services providers: a qualitative study. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(1):1-7.
  • Exploring How Lay Rescuers Overcome Barriers to Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: A Qualitative Study. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 14; :1-6
  • Mathiesen WT, Bjørshol CA, … Søreide E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mutual trust between community citizens and towards social institutions may be reasons for overcoming barriers in providing CPR by lay rescuers. A normative obligation to act, regardless of CPR training and, importantly, without facing any adverse legal reactions, also seems to be an important factor behind CPR provision. Mathiesen WT , Bjørshol CA , Høyland S , Braut GS , Søreide E . Exploring how lay rescuers overcome barriers to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation: a qualitative study. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(1):1-6.
  • Paramedic Application of a Triage Sieve: A Paper-Based Exercise. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 14; :1-11
  • Cuttance G, Dansie K, Rayner T
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the use of an aide-memoir for maximizing MCI triage accuracy rates. A "just-in-time" educational refresher provided comparable benefits, however its practical application to the MCI setting has significant operational limitations. In addition, this study provides some guidance on triage sieve accuracy rate measures that can be applied to define acceptable performance of a triage sieve during a MCI.

  • Evaluation of Hospitals' Disaster Preparedness Plans in the Holy City of Makkah (Mecca): A Cross-Sectional Observation Study. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 14; :1-13
  • Al-Shareef AS, Alsulimani LK, … Ciottone GR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Makkah has experienced multiple disaster incidents over the last decade. The present research suggests that Makkah hospitals are insufficiently prepared for potential future disasters. This may represent a considerable threat to the health of both residents and visitors to Makkah. This study demonstrated that there is significant room for improvement in most aspects of hospital Emergency Operations Plans, in particular: reviewing the plan and increasing the frequency of multi-agency and multi-hospital drills. Preparedness for terrorism utilizing chemical, biologic, radiation, nuclear, explosion (CBRNE) and infectious diseases was found to be sub-optimal and should be assessed further. Al-Shareef AS , Alsulimani LK , Bojan HM , Masri TM , Grimes JO , Molloy MS , Ciottone GR . Evaluation of hospitals' disaster preparedness plans in the holy city of Makkah (Mecca): a cross-sectional observation study. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32 (1):1-13.
  • Assessing Hospital Disaster Readiness Over Time at the US Department of Veterans Affairs. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 14; :1-12
  • Der-Martirosian C, Radcliff TA, … Dobalian A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Measuring emergency management capabilities is a necessary first step to improving those capabilities. Furthermore, assessing hospital readiness over time and creating robust hospital readiness assessment tools can help hospitals make informed decisions regarding allocation of resources to ensure patient safety, provide timely access to high-quality patient care, and identify best practices in emergency management during and after disasters. Moreover, with some minor modifications, this comprehensive, all-hazards-based, hospital preparedness assessment tool could be adapted for use beyond the VA.

  • The Birth and Growth of the National Ambulance Service in Ghana. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Dec 12; :1-11
  • Zakariah A, Stewart BT, … Mock C
  • CONCLUSIONS: The steady growth of the NAS is evidence of the need for Emergency Medical Services and the effects of sound planning and timely responses to changes in program indicators. The way forward includes further capacity building to increase the number of scene responses, strengthening ties with local health facilities to ensure timely emergency medical care and appropriateness of transfers, assuring a more stable funding stream, and improving public awareness of NAS services.
