About this Textbook

This textbook describes what nurses need to know about pediatric disaster nursing, including public policy, and addresses preparedness for all types of disasters (natural and man-made) and strategies for hospital, school and community preparedness. The book opens with a brief history of disaster nursing and explains the key differences between pediatric and adult disaster nursing. 
Recent years have been marked by numerous man-made and natural disasters, which have led nurses to seek new resources to be better prepared, in their role as nurses, for all types of disasters. Responding to this lack of resources, the book focuses on the unique needs of babies and children. It is the first and only textbook on pediatric disaster preparedness to include both the physical and psychological effects of disaster. Key aspects covered include: the psychosocial differences in and how to approach children; family reunification; medications, supplies and equipment; and decontamination. 
Given its breadth of coverage, the book is well suited as a textbook for nursing classes, while also offering a valuable resource for nurses working in the field.

Reviews

“This book is written for nurses but highly recommended for all levels of emergency healthcare providers, all childcare providers in every community, leaders tasked with setting up community disaster teams, and graduate pediatric nursing students. It is also highly applicable to hospital-based teams. … This book is unique in the field of pediatric emergency care because it is pertinent to current events, uses actual disasters from the past two decades, and concentrates on pediatrics.” (Ellyn PhD Cavanagh, Doody's Book Reviews, September 25, 2020)
