  1. These are wonderful! Can I put in requests for other searches?

  2. Hi Melinda,

    I'm glad you like these searches; thanks! Unfortunately, I don't think I could manage requests. But I would be very interested to hear what searches are of interest to you (and others). And, you never know, some eager searcher out there may contribute their strategy to the blog. I'm open to the site becoming a collaborative workspace :)



  3. topics such as...

    Mass casualty incidents
    surge capacity
    radiological emergency
    disasters and children
    disasters and the aging / elderly
    disasters and special needs
    infectious disease pandemic
    radiological emergencies
    chemical emergencies
    weather emergencies of all types
    water resiliency / supply

    Mostly from the perspective of hospital planning and patient care / treatment

    Our library is working on some of these and will share with you when we get some good ones going.
