These include; staffing numbers types and distribution, health workforce and health worker performance. An analysis of this situation is important in order to put in place solutions that are specific to the local context. Other factors like finance, policy, available infrastructure, prevalent disease conditions and security need to be considered. SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS A. EXTEND EMERGENCY RELIEF PROGRAMS INTO THE POST-CONFLICT PERIOD In this strategy, organizations that provided relief during the conflict period help to ameliorate the shortage in healthcare personnel.
Models for Crisis and Disasters Management Student: Hirschkorn Remus Alexandru Introduction The risk and crisis management systems are support decision systems placed at the highest level of a hierarchical intelligent system of alerts, which could be implemented in different domains where the risk of happening an undesirable event that can disturb the good function of a critical infrastructure exists. Am alerting system should be put in place and this should notify a operator or the competent authorities, depending on the nature of the disaster, regarding an abnormality in the pattern of the normal conditions. An intelligent response is needed to prevent and/or
This paper will discuss a psychological support agency and the framework for an ideal support agency to respond to a natural catastrophic event. This paper will include but not limited to the size of the support agency, the qualifications and skills of the employees, the services that the support agency provides, the key components of a psychological support agency and its overarching mission, and last but not least, how the support agency can work with other organizations and the roles the criminal justice system would play in the agency. It is unfortunate that a catastrophic disaster can take place at any given time without warning. It is very important to have a plan set in place in case something does happen. A catastrophic disaster
Following consultation, Brodhead (2015) states that our decision to intervene should be determined by the extent to which the treatment will negatively affect our client’s goals and the risk to our professional relationships. This process ensures that a safe balance can be struck, between maintaining our professional relationships and striving to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients. This is important for the continued promotion of behaviour analysis, but also to ensure that we are well placed to intervene when it really
In the event of an emergency or disaster, one of the biggest challenges will be to communicate effectively with the vulnerable population of the community. A multi-faceted strategy will be needed to address specific needs of these groups or individuals. b. Vulnerable populations have been pre-identified and communication strategies developed to address their specific needs. c. Informational material will be available to the public.
These lines represent the collection of data from the assessment, which determines the health status of the community like injury and disease prevalence (Vollman, 2012). Then, the “lines of resistance (LRs)” (Vollman, 2012, p.215) are placed within the subsystems to defend the core in the model. These lines are identified as assets and strengths of the community, which protect the members from a stressor (Vollman, 2012). A stressor is “tension-producing stimuli that have the potential of causing disruption in the community” (Vollman, 2012, p. 216). Lastly, the other unbroken line surrounding the NLD is called “flexible line of defense (FLD” (Vollman, 2012, p.216).
The psychological support should have a mission to help the needy during emergency situations for example the agency should react immediately if earthquake occurs. The psychological support agency should collaborate with government agencies, criminal justice departments, municipalities and local community for providing services. For example Inter Agency Standing Committee Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) in Emergency Settings (IASC, 2007) were developed through an comprehensive process, with input from UN agencies, NGOs and Universities. Another agency International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) provides humanitarian help not only with traditional relief aid such as shelter, food distribution and basic wellbeing care, but also with psychosocial support. Psychosocial support is a vital part of the IFRC’s emergency response.
Critical thinking skills in emergency management and public safety must involve thinking of differing situations and considering foreseeable solutions for every crisis. Whether the likelihood of disasters happening is low or high, these circumstances are still possible and deserve thorough discussions and countermeasure
To protect lives, honours and properties of the public is the prime objective of the government. To respond against any emergency and/or disaster to save the lives of public is very crucial due to shortage of time and allocation of optimal resources depending upon the nature of the disaster. In the whole scenario of emergency right information regarding the type of emergency, its location, availability of resources to the closest vicinity of the crises and their optimal deployment and strong communications among the stakeholders is crucial to control / restrict / manage the panic events of a crisis. Application of IT can play paramount role in emergency response system. The following capabilities of an emergency response system plays key
Rather, they represent what ordinary dwellers continuously have to do – if rarely under circumstances of their own choosing – to secure a housing and livelihood in the city. These practices are embedded in the particular setting’s historical and sociocultural construct. They represent the tactical, improvised and often temporal spatial practices of the lived city, as opposed to the strategic, zoned and regulated urban life as represented by abstract master plans. The term spatial should here be understood with reference to the mutual influence of built environ¬ments and the social practices performed within them. Tonkiss has investigated this interplay bet¬ween the social and physical shaping of contemporary cities.
