Develop a presentation on Issues of Health Security during the Response Phase of the cycle.
Demonstrate an understanding of the dynamics of the phases regarding maintaining health security.
Provide a general brief that discusses the range of health security issues that may be encountered during the response to a crisis or disaster as if briefing policy makers with little to no background in emergency management.
In particular, focus discussion on those threats that exist no just to victims but to the responders themselves. What are those threats and how might they impact decision making? How do you weigh the competing priorities of saving/recovering victims, preventing further injury and death, and protecting your responders.
This is not an easy calculation; discuss how to possibly deal with this potential conflict of priorities. Should not be presented as a dissertation but rather a briefing to inform outsiders to the profession,.
