Paperback / softback
Disasters are difficult to manage for many reasons: the immediacy of the event, magnitude of the event, lack of evidence-based practices, and the limited usefulness of many developed protocols.
Consequently, combining academic approaches with realistic and practical recommendations continues to be an underdeveloped aspect of disaster texts.
The Oxford American Handbook of Disaster Medicine offers a functional blend of science with pragmatism.
Approached from a real-world perspective, the handbook is a portable guide that provides sufficient scientific background to facilitate broader application and problem solving yet approach the topic in a prioritized fashion, supporting rapid understanding and utilization.
Contributing authors are clinical and public health providers with disaster experience.
This book encompasses the entire scope of disaster medicine from general concepts and fundamental principles to both manmade and natural threats.
