We've seen more wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters in recent years. These events significantly affect individuals and communities - physically, mentally and spiritually. Needing to evacuate homes and communities can be traumatizing. Likewise, the evacuation of health facilities is challenging and complex for staff, patients, and families. This is especially true for people who live in rural and remote areas at higher risk of wildfires.
Natural disasters affect the ability of health systems to deliver safe and high-quality health and social care. What strategies can we use to prepare for, and respond to, these emergencies to reduce the burden on people, communities and health systems?
Join us as we explore the lessons learned from responding to natural disasters through the lens of policy-makers, health leaders, and emergency responders.
