Title: Impact of Healthcare Providers on Emergency Preparedness Among Vulnerable Clients
Dr. McNeill’s program of research involves emergency preparedness and response of nurses as well as individuals in the community and the households they live in, particularly vulnerable populations. She endeavors to improve disaster competencies among nurses, willingness to report to duty after a disaster, and emergency preparedness of all. Her research involves emergency shelter placement, community health issues to include emergency preparedness and response, resilience, and most recently, COVID-19. Research involving emergency preparedness centers on investigating response measures inclusive of individuals and populations with access and functional needs as well as resiliency among populations and the impact health care providers have on preparedness levels. She investigates measures to improve emergency preparedness and response among health care professionals and preparedness levels among vulnerable citizens. In this presentation, Dr. McNeill will discuss the evolution of her program of research, describing the findings from several of her studies, and providing implications for practice. Participants will learn about emergency preparedness and the importance of educating clients and patients on how to become prepared for emergencies, and the impact a healthcare provider can make in emergency preparedness among vulnerable clients and patients. Finally, resources for nurses to educate themselves on emergency preparedness and response topics will be discussed.
