Assessment 3
Disaster Plan With Guidelines for Implementation: Tool Kit for the Team
Overview: Develop a disaster preparedness tool kit for a community or population. Then, develop a 5-slide presentation for your care coordination team to prepare them to use the tool kit to execute a disaster preparedness
plan.
Note:
The assessments in this course build upon the work you completed in previous assessments. Therefore, complete the assessments in the order in which they are presented.
Disaster planning is vital to ensuring effective and seamless coordination, throughout the recovery period, among those affected by the disaster and an extensive array of health care providers and services. Care coordination, as part of an overall disaster response effort, helps ensure that victims receive needed care as access to providers and services are gradually restored over time.
SHOW LESSThis assessment provides an opportunity for you to develop a disaster preparedness tool kit for a community or population of your choice, and prepare your care coordination team to use the tool kit to execute that plan.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
Competency 1: Propose a project for change, for a community or population, within a care coordination setting.
Identify the key elements of a disaster preparedness tool kit for providing effective care coordination to a community or population.
Competency 2: Align care coordination resources with community health care needs.
Assess the care coordination needs of a community or population
in a disaster situation.
Identify the personnel and material resources needed in an emergency to provide the necessary coordinated care.
Competency 3: Apply project management best practices to affect ethical practice and support positive health outcomes in the delivery of safe, culturally competent care in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.
Describe standards and best practice methods for safeguarding the provision of ethical, culturally-competent care in challenging circumstances.
Identify applicable local, national, or international regulatory requirements governing disaster relief that influence coordinated care.
Competency 4: Identify ways in which the care coordinator leader supports collaboration between key stakeholders in the care coordination process.
Analyze the interagency and interprofessional relationships essential to coordinated care in a disaster.
Competency 5: Communicate effectively with diverse audiences, in an appropriate form and style, consistent with applicable organizational, professional, and scholarly standards.
Prepare a care coordination team to use a disaster preparedness tool kit for implementing a disaster preparedness project plan.
Support main points, arguments, and conclusions with relevant and credible evidence, correctly formatting citations and references using APA style.

Assessment Instructions
Note:Your work in Assessments 1 and 2 will inform your work in this assessment. Therefore, complete the assessments
in the order in which they are presented.
Preparation
For this assessment, you will assume the role of Care Coordinator for Disaster Care
in the same practice setting you chose for Assessment 1. Within this context, you will develop a disaster planning tool kit to provide comprehensive community health care disaster relief or to meet the care needs of a specific population within the community. Choose a current event or hypothetical disaster scenario as the basis for your
tool kit. Explore past and recent disasters and lessons learned.
After completing your disaster planning tool kit for your particular situation, you will then develop a short presentation for your care coordination team to prepare your team for using the tool kit.
Note:Remember that you can submit all—or a portion of—your draft documents to Smarthinking for feedback
before you submit the final version of this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.
Presentation Tools
You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or any other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with your instructor to avoid potential file compatibility issues.
Use the speakers notes section of each slide to develop your talking points and cite your sources, as appropriate. If you need help designing your presentation, you are encouraged to review the various presentation resources provided for this assessment. These resources will help you to design an effective presentation, whether you choose to use PowerPoint or other presentation design software.
You have the option of either recording a voiceover track for your presentation or creating a video. In either case, you may use Kaltura Media or other technology of your choice for your audio or video recording
If using Kaltura Media, refer to Using Kaltura for directions on recording and uploading your video in the courseroom.
Note:
If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.
Requirements
For this assessment:
Develop a disaster planning tool kit that includes:
The policy for the disaster preparedness plan.
Guidelines on how to employ the policy in practice.
Recommendations for identifying and working with stakeholders to achieve buy-in and support to implement and sustain the plan.
Develop a presentation for your care coordination team to prepare them to use the disaster planning tool kit to implement a disaster preparedness plan.
Use the care coordination project plan you developed in Assessment 1 as a model for your tool kit in this assessment. You may choose to develop an overarching plan for the entire community
or to address the care needs of a specific population within the community. You may address the same population you chose in Assessment 1 or Assessment 2.
