Product Description

Public health crises, such as COVID-19, natural disasters from wildfires to tornados, and human-caused emergencies, including mass shootings and cyberattacks, have been on the rise in recent years, putting health care organizations on high alert.

Emergency Management in Health Care: All All-Hazards Approach, 5th edition, is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource to help all types of health care organizations plan for a wide range of emergencies.
