Online Guide for Children in Disasters and Emergencies
(DIMRC, EMSC, ASPR - 9/2014)

Developed by the National Library of Medicine's Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC), in collaboration with the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), the Health Resources on Children in Disasters and Emergencies is a compendium of online resources related to medical and public health issues on this topic. Links are provided to both journal articles and to other documents and materials that may be useful in preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery activities. Its intent is to consolidate the multitude of resources available across a variety of organizations, websites, databases, and training sites, making the search for relevant materials simpler and more direct.

For more information about the online guide, access the archived webcast "Not Just Small Adults: Health Resources on Children in Disasters and Emergencies," which originally aired on September 11. The webcast included presenters from DIMRC, the EMSC National Resource Center (NRC), and ASPR.

Please note that this new online guide will replace the PEDPrepared database, which was recently removed from the EMSC NRC website.
