Abstract The ultimate goals of conducting disaster research are to obtain information to: (1) decrease risks that a hazard will produce a disaster; (2) decrease the mortality associated with disasters; (3) decrease the morbidity associated with disasters; and (4) enhance recovery of the affected community. And decrease the risks that a hazard will produce a disaster. Two principal, but inter-related, branches of disaster research are: (1) Epidemiological; and (2) Interventional. Epidemiological… 

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part VII: The Relief/Recovery Framework

The Relief/Recovery Framework provides the structure needed to systematically study the processes involved in providing relief or recovery interventions that result in a new LOF for a given Societal System and/or its component functions.

Categorization and Analysis of Disaster Health Publications: An Inventory

The evidence base for HADs is far from robust and is disorganized, making the development of scientific evidence on which to base best practices difficult, and a stronger evidence base is needed to develop the science associated with the H ADs.

Disaster Metrics: A Comprehensive Framework for Disaster Evaluation Typologies

The proposed Comprehensive Framework for Disaster Evaluation Typologies outlines the different typologies of disaster evaluations that were identified in this study and brings them together into a single framework that has relevance at an international level and is expected to benefit the disaster, humanitarian, and development sectors.

Disaster E-Health Framework for Community Resilience

The project to develop a disaster e-health framework that can inform national disaster and health strategies and its extension to embrace community resilience that strengthens preparedness, safeguards life during the disaster phase, and assists long-term recovery to preserve the health and basic values of citizens are described.

Five Challenges When Managing Mass Casualty or Disaster Situations: A Review Study

The challenges when managing mass casualty or disaster events involved were mainly related to the ability to manage uncertainty and surprising situations, using structured processes to respond.

Health among disaster survivors and health professionals after the Haiyan Typhoon: a self-selected Internet-based web survey

There were short-term and long-term physical, psychological, and social consequences for the survivors as a result of the Haiyan typhoon and health professionals deployed during the disaster reported worse health, especially concerning mental health problems.

Health Outcomes After Disaster for Older Adults With Chronic Disease: A Systematic Review.

The age-stratified analyses reported in this review found multiple instances where disasters have limited or insignificant effects on older adults relative to younger populations.

Peer-Reviewed Validation of a Comprehensive Framework for Disaster Evaluation Typologies

The modified framework, CFDET 2018, provides a unifying framework within which existing evaluation typologies can be structured and gives evaluators confidence to choose an appropriate strategy for their particular evaluation in the disaster setting and facilitates consistency in reporting across the different phases of a disaster.

Being Both Helpers and Victims: Health Professionals’ Experiences of Working During a Natural Disaster

Being a health professional during a natural disaster was a multi-faceted, powerful, and ambiguous experience of being part of the response system at the same time as being a survivor of the disaster.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part II: The Disaster Health Conceptual Framework Revisited

This Framework is based on deconstructions of the commonly used Disaster Management Cycle, and includes interventions designed to decrease the likelihood that a hazard will cause an event, and should an event occur, that the amount of energy released will be reduced.

The Disaster Logic Model (DLM) is an adaptation of a logic model used for the evaluation of educational programs and provides the structure required for the analysis of disaster-related interventions.

A Risk-Reduction Framework, based on the Disaster Logic Model, details the processes involved in hazard mitigation and/or capacity-building interventions to augment the resilience of a community or to decrease the risk that a secondary event will develop.
