Nursing crisis intervention
Consider the hurricane Andrew or Katrina, then put yourself in the role of the Local Emergency Management Agency Coordinator and answer the following questions.
- What helpful or positive role can the local media play in helping to resolve the crisis? How does one facilitate that to happen?
- What kind of training, education, and experience do you believe should be required to be an effective and competent manager of a crisis such as the scenario one described above?
- Given a natural disaster such as is contained in this scenario, how do you go about coordinating and communicating an effective response?
