REPLY1 The public health departments role during natural disasters is to provide practical assistance in time to disaster victims to facilitate relief measures and rehabilitation services. The health care personnel possess unique skills in handling all types of disasters. It is the function of public health workers to assess disaster victims and determine the extent of their injuries (Murray, Aitsi-Selmi, & Blanchard, 2015). Since their cases are of urgency, the public health department is tasked with prioritizing their cases. Additionally, they collaborate with other departments in the hospital care organization to provide emotional and material support to the disaster victims. Counseling sessions and programs are also conducted by public health professionals to ensure that victims retain their emotional stability (Khorram-Manesh, 2020). Preventive and acute care needs are also offered to the disaster victims by the public health care personnel. It is also the role of healthcare workers to report to government authorities the number of disaster victims, the extent of their injuries, and the support they require while taking medication. In addition to that, public health workers are supposed to ensure that the emergency alert and response team is always ready to accommodate disaster victims. REPLY2 The public health role of preparing for and responding to emergencies has expanded in the face of massive impacts from recent disasters. The application of epidemiology in disaster settings, also known as disaster epidemiology, can provide actionable information for use by policymakers, planners, incident commanders, decision-makers, and affected community members. A main component of public health department is safety. Public health department makes reference to all the possible strategies that can be implemented to assure the safety of workers while performing their jobs. The purpose of public health department is to prevent hazards and reduce potential harmful incidents that can occur in the workplace. The strategies implemented can include safety prevention measures such as the use of personal protective equipment or the establishment of health and safety policies.

1. Your community is at risk for a specific type of natural disaster (e.g., tornado, flood, hurricane, earthquake). Use Nightingales principles and observations to develop an emergency plan for one of these events. Outline the items you would include in the plan. 2. Using Nightingales concepts of ventilation, light, noise, and cleanliness, analyze the setting in which you are practicing nursing as an employee or student. 3. You are participating in a quality improvement project in your work setting. Share how you would develop ideas to present to the group based on a Nightingale approach Explain in 3 paragraphs total

Your PowerPoint should Include the hypothetical scenario you originally shared in the Discussion Forum. Include your examination of the data that you could use, how the data might be accessed/collected The term knowledge worker was first coined by management consultant and author Peter Drucker in his book, The Landmarks of Tomorrow (1959). Drucker defined knowledge workers as high-level workers who apply theoretical and analytical knowledge, acquired through formal training, to develop products and services. Does this sound familiar? Nurses are very much knowledge workers. What has changed since Druckers time are the ways that knowledge can be acquired. The volume of data that can now be generated and the tools used to access this data have evolved significantly in recent years and helped healthcare professionals (among many others) to assume the role of knowledge worker in new and powerful ways. In this Assignment, you will consider the evolving role of the nurse leader and how this evolution has led nurse leaders to assume the role of knowledge worker. You will prepare a PowerPoint presentation with an infographic (graphic that visually represents information, data, or knowledge. Infographics are intended to present information quickly and clearly.) to educate others on the role of nurse as knowledge worker. Reference: Drucker, P. (1959). The landmarks of tomorrow. New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers. To Prepare: · Review the concepts of informatics as presented in the Resources. · Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker. · Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed. The Assignment: · Explain the concept of a knowledge worker. · Define and explain nursing informatics and highlight the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker. Develop a simple infographic to help explain these concepts.
