Disaster Preparedness The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing

UT: Nursing - Social Work - Pharmacy

The School of Nursing is providing a template for action and organization to the College of Pharmacy and the School of Social Work. The Disaster Mobilization Plan and the committee structure for the School of Nursing was shared with the College of Pharmacy and the School of Social Work.

 Each school and professional discipline can bring strengths, skills, and talent to a disaster response event. For example, pharmacy students and faculty can perform intake and patient assessments, administer vaccinations, assess medication needs and perform pharmaceutical dispensing functions. Social Work students and faculty can perform intake and patient assessments, triage evacuees or patients, initiate on-site case management, and provide crisis counseling.
