At A Glance

The fourth edition of Landesman's Public Health Management of Disasters: The Practice Guide continues to serve as the only comprehensive work that provides a thorough foundation regarding Public Health's permanent role and responsibility in relation to the structure, organization and function of health management in emergency management and disaster prevention, preparedness, response, recovery and reconstruction.

Updates to the Fourth Edition take into account the most current federal preparedness guidance from the National Preparedness Goal, the National Health Security Strategy, and the National Response Framework. Additional updates to emerging approaches for public health surveillance, laboratory and disaster information systems, as well as hospital surveillance in hospitals are included. New threat and hazard identification, alerting and warning systems are profiled along with the use of new electronic technologies to communicate such as smartphone apps and social media such as, texting and twitter. Environment health and occupational health are now two separate chapters that include updates on environmental standards and common foodborne diseases.

This book is an essential resource for those who find that by virtue of their work must have more than a core understanding of public health disaster management.
