I am pleased to announce the publication of a new text – Disaster Health Management: Primer for Students and Practitioners (Routledge).   As the attached flyer says:

Edited by Gerry FitzGerald, Queensland University of Technology, Mike Tarrant, Queensland University of Technology, Peter Aitken, Queensland University of Technology and James Cook University, and Marie Fredriksen, Queensland University of Technology.

Disaster Health Management is the first comprehensive textbook to provide a standard guide to terminology and management systems across the entire spectrum of disaster health. The textbook provides an authoritative overview of: the conceptual basis for disaster management; systems and structures for disaster management; getting ready for disasters; incident management; recovery; natural disasters; man-made disasters; and strategic considerations. Using examples of broad principles with global application this is an essential text for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as for  professionals involved in all health aspects of disaster management.

I’m pleased to have made a contribution to this text.  Fiona McDonald (Queensland University of Technology), Erin Smith (Edith Cowan University) and I are the authors of the chapter ‘Legal and Ethical Aspects of Disaster Management’.

For those interested, the flyer contains an order form and a code for a 20% discount on the retail price.
