Family Reunification Following Disasters: A Planning Tool for Health Care Facilities

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is pleased to announce the new release of a tool titled, “Family Reunification Following Disasters: A Planning Tool for Health Care Facilities”. This tool was inspired by discussions within an AAP Disaster Preparedness Advisory Council Subcommittee on Reunification Planning and produced in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Disaster Medicine with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The purpose of this tool is to provide guidance and templates for hospitals as they review and update their plans to provide information, support services, and safe reunification assistance to family members of patients who have experienced disasters. For additional information, contact the AAP via e-mail atDisasterReady@aap.org.
