Overview

Awarded first place in the 2013 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Environmental Health category, and second place in the Community-Public Health category

"What a wonderful resource!"--Doody's Medical Reviews

"In this third edition Dr. Veenema continues her mission to help our nation's nurses develop the knowledge and skills needed to efficiently and effectively respond to disasters. Many times nurses assume that they aren't emergency responders, so they don't need to understand how the system works. When a disaster strikes a community-whether it's a bus accident, a tornado, a hurricane or terrorist attack-nurses will be on the front lines helping those who are in need. To protect themselves, their families and their communities, nurses need to understand the principles and content of this comprehensive textbook. I encourage all nurses to develop the knowledge and skills presented here that are needed to achieve the vision of resilient communities outlined in the National Health Security Strategy."

From the Foreword by Ann R. Knebel, RN, DNSc, FAAN

Deputy Director with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response

"The third edition of Disaster Nursing and Emergency Preparedness was confronted with the daunting task of both summarizing the many important new findings that have now become available through extensive research and the experience of public health practitioners and yet maintain the convenience and user-friendliness of the first two editions. Dr. Veenema has succeeded in accomplishing this magnificently. The third edition has almost double the number of pages compared with the first edition, including a much stronger and expanded clinical management section to address clinical situations not frequently encountered by nurses...The reader is provided with substantially greater coverage of the needs of children and adolescents following the recommendations of the National Commission on Children and Disasters (2010)...[This book] will continue to serve as both a timely and comprehensive text for this nation's 2.7 million nurses and for educating the next generation of nursing professionals."

From the Foreword by Eric K. Noji, MD, MPH

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Ret.)

Washington, DC

"The contributing authors read like "Who's Who" of the disaster leaders. They lend their special expertise and insights which are supported and elucidated by cogent learning strategies in the use of case studies, side bars, student questions, and packed content in all areas of disaster participation, preparedness, policies, and research. Many teachers, students, practitioners, and policy makers will find this edition a treasure trove of new information, ideas and ideologies and will use this volume as a text, a reference, and resource for the challenging work they do in disaster preparedness and practice. For over ten years [this book]has been the Hallmark Text in its field and this edition proves to be the best ever."

From the Foreword by Loretta C. Ford, RN, PNP, EdD

University of Rochester School of Nursing

"It is my hope that all schools of nursing will use this book as part of a disaster preparedness curriculum and that all nurses will become familiar with its contentsand inspired to volunteer when disaster strikes. Disaster victims and their families deserve nothing less from our nation's nurses."

The new edition of this AJN Book of the Year continues to provide nurses with the most comprehensive, current, and reliable information available so they can develop the skills to efficiently and effectively respond to disasters or public health emergencies. Meticulously researched and reviewed by the world's foremost experts in preparedness for terrorism, natural disasters, and other unanticipated health emergencies, the text has been revised and updated with significant new content, including 10 new chapters and a digital adjunct teacher's guide with exercises and critical thinking questions.

This new edition has strengthened its pediatric focus with updated and expanded chapters on caring for children's physical, mental, and behavioral health following a disaster. New chapters address climate change, global complex human emergencies, caring for patients with HIV/AIDS following a disaster, information technology and disaster response, and hospital and emergency department preparedness. The text provides a vast amount of evidence-based information on disaster planning and response for natural and environmental disasters and those caused by chemical, biological, and radiological elements, as well as disaster recovery. It also addresses leadership, management, and policy issues in disaster nursing and deepens our understanding of the importance of protecting mental health throughout the disaster life cycle. Each chapter is clearly formatted and includes Key Messages and Learning Objectives. Appendices present diagnosis and treatment regimens, creating personal disaster plans, a damage assessment guide, a glossary of terms, and more. Consistent with the Federal Disaster Response Framework, the book promotes competency-based expert nursing care during disasters and positive health outcomes for small and large populations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive manual of disaster nursing and emergency preparedness for chemical, biological, and radiological terrorism, as well as other hazards (including natural disasters, special populations, and disaster recovery). The third edition provides an expanded focus on human services, mental health aspects of disasters, and the most vulnerable populations during disasters.
Purpose: The intent is to help nurses develop the knowledge and skills to efficiently and effectively respond to disasters. The book comprehensively meets these objectives.
Audience: Written for nurses, the book is comprehensive enough to provide program development and curriculum for advanced disaster-specialty nursing practice.
Features: The book covers coordination, leadership, and policy development for disaster nursing. The best part is the "Blueprint for the Future of Disaster Nursing," but another unique feature is the chapter on "American Red Cross Disaster Health Services and Disaster Nursing: National Capability-Local Community Impact," which puts community volunteerism in perspective with coordinated emergency responses to disasters.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive manual on disaster nursing with current information which justifies replacing the previous edition. What a wonderful resource!
