CPHRC presents findings on the disaster communication needs of children with special health care needs at APHA
On behalf of the Center for Public Health Readiness and Communication, Leah Popek and Rachel Seitz presented a poster at the 2019 APHA Conference held in Philadelphia, PA. The poster featured findings from a survey of parents and caregivers of children with special health care needs (CYSHCN), which sought to better understand the disaster information needs of their families.
The survey is part of a larger, mixed-methods study currently underway and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study also includes a survey of health care providers, semi-structured interviews with caregivers of CYSHCN, and focus groups with emergency management personnel and health care providers.
