Title:
The Assessment of Standardized Training Programs in Public Health Preparedness
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention)          IMPACT OF NDLS TRAINING ON DISASTER RESPONSE   ABSTRACT  Implications for the Development and Evaluation of Standardized Training Programs in Disaster Response This study evaluates data from the 2005 National Disaster Support training program and discusses the implications of these findings for the development and evaluation of standardized training programs in disaster response. In 2005, the National Disaster Life Support training courses were held within the State of Texas.  A course evaluation was mailed to those who provided contact information. The study population (n = 2150) consisted primarily of nurses (50%; n=1074). Data analysis was performed to a) describe the demographic profile of the survey respondents, b) determine whether the survey respondents participated in the Hurricane Katrina or Rita response efforts c) compare the role the disaster responders assumed in response to Hurricane Katrina or Rita to their day-to-day professional role and finally d) discuss training implications for future programs. Results indicated that the majority of the healthcare professionals served in the same role for which they are professionally trained during the disaster (Physicians: 68%; Nurses: 50.4%)  Primarily Nurses, EMT, and Fire professionals served in multiple roles. The implications of these results support the development of standardized training programs which will prepare trainees to effectively respond in multiple roles.
