Assessment 3 Instructions: Disaster Recovery
To prepare for the
assessment, complete the Vila Health: Disaster Recovery Scenario simulation.
Develop a disaster recovery
plan to lessen health disparities and improve access to community services
after a disaster. Then, develop and record a 10 slide presentation of the plan
with speaker notes for the Vila Health system, city officials, and the disaster
When disaster strikes, community members must
be protected. A comprehensive recovery plan, guided by the MAP-IT (Mobilize,
Assess, Plan, Implement, Track) framework, is essential to help ensure
everyone’s safety. The unique needs of residents must be assessed to lessen
health disparities and improve access to equitable services after a disaster.
Recovery efforts depend on the appropriateness of the plan, the extent to which
key stakeholders have been prepared, the quality of the trace-mapping, and the
allocation of available resources. In a time of cost containment, when
personnel and resources may be limited, the needs of residents must be weighed
carefully against available resources.
In this assessment, you are a community task
force member responsible for developing a disaster recovery plan for the
Vila Health community using MAP-IT and trace-mapping, which you will present to
city officials and the disaster relief team.
To prepare for the assessment, complete
the Vila Health: Disaster Recovery
In addition, you are encouraged to complete
the Disaster Preparedness and Management activity. The information gained from
completing this activity will help you succeed with the assessment as you think
through key issues in disaster preparedness and management in the community or
workplace. Completing activities is also a way to demonstrate engagement.
Begin thinking about:
budget, and community makeup.
People accountable for
implementation of the disaster recovery plan.
Healthy People 2020 goals
and 2030 objectives.
A timeline for the recovery effort.
You may also wish to:
Review the MAP-IT (Mobilize,
Assess, Plan, Implement, Track) framework, which you will use to guide the
development of your plan:
to lessen health disparities and improve access to services.
a plan to reach Healthy People 2020 goals or 2030 objectives.
Review the assessment
instructions and scoring guide to ensure that you understand the work you
will be asked to complete.
Every 10 years, The U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
release information on health indicators, public health issues, and current
trends. At the end of 2020, Healthy People 2030 was released to provide
information for the next 10 years. Healthy People 2030 provides the most
updated content when it comes to prioritizing public health issues; however,
there are historical contents that offer a better understanding of some topics.
Disaster preparedness is addressed in Healthy People 2030, but a more robust
understanding of MAP-IT, triage, and recovery efforts is found in Healthy
People 2020. For this reason, you will find references to both Healthy People
2020 and Healthy People 2030 in this course.
Complete the following:
1. Develop a disaster
recovery plan for the Vila Health community that will lessen health disparities
and improve access to services after a disaster. Refer back to the Vila Health: Disaster Recovery Scenario to
understand the Vila Health community.
o Assess community
o Consider resources,
personnel, budget, and community makeup.
o Identify the people
accountable for implementation of the plan and describe their roles.
o Focus on specific
Healthy People 2020 goals and 2030 objectives.
o Include a timeline
for the recovery effort.
2. Apply the MAP-IT
(Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, Track) framework to guide the development
of your plan:
o Mobilize collaborative partners.
o Assess community needs.
o Use the demographic
data and specifics related to the disaster to identify the needs of the
community and develop a recovery plan. Consider physical, emotional, cultural,
and financial needs of the entire community.
o Include in your
plan the equitable allocation of services for the diverse community.
o Apply the triage
classification to provide a rationale for those who may have been injured
during the train derailment. Provide support for your position.
o Include in your
plan contact tracing of the homeless, disabled, displaced community members,
migrant workers, and those who have hearing impairment or English as a second
language in the event of severe tornadoes.
o Plan to lessen health disparities and
improve access to services.
o Implement a plan to reach Healthy
People 2020 goals and 2030 objectives.
o Track and trace-map community
o Use the CDC’s Contract Tracing Resources for Health Departments as
a template to create your contact tracing.
o Describe the plan
for contact tracing during the disaster and recovery phase.
3. Develop a slide
presentation of your disaster recovery plan with an audio recording of you
presenting your assessment of the Vila Health: Disaster Recovery Scenario for city
officials and the disaster relief team. Be sure to also include speaker
