ANHE Research Forum Monthly Call – March 2022

March 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

March 24th, 2022

ANHE Research Forum – March 24 at 3pm ET

Title: Household Emergency Preparedness

Speaker: Tara Heagele, PhD, RN, EMT, Assistant Professor at The City University of New York’s Hunter College School of Nursing in New York, NY.

Dr. Heagele started her program of research by exploring the household emergency preparedness activities of elderly and medically frail community members qualitatively with the hope of better understanding the reasons why people do or do not prepare for disasters to inform policy. She is especially interested in the role that nurses have in mobilizing the community to prepare for and recover from disasters. She hopes that her disaster nursing research will ultimately save lives and promote disaster-related community resilience. In this presentation, Dr. Heagele will discuss the evolution of her program of research, describing the findings from three of her studies, and providing implications for practice. Participants will learn the barriers and facilitators of adequate household emergency preparedness, how to measure household emergency preparedness, and how to implement a nurse-led household emergency preparedness intervention targeting community members.
