Southern Medical Journal presents special issue on disaster preparedness
Date:1/7/2013

Philadelphia, Pa. (January 7, 2013) Surveys suggest that while most US physicians are willing to play a role in responding to natural and manmade disasters, most do not feel adequately prepared to fulfill that role. Toward helping physicians and health care systems understand and fulfill their obligation to provide medical care in disasters, the January Southern Medical Journal is a special issue on disaster medicine and physician preparedness. The official journal of the Southern Medical Association, the SMJ is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

The special issue includes 22 reviews and original papers on preparing for the medical response to disasters and catastrophic events. Dr. G. Richard Holt, Editor-in-Chief of the Southern Medical Journal, writes: "I take the position that it is a professional and an ethical responsibility to potential patients and society for physicians to engage in sufficient self-learning that would provide them with at least an acceptable level of clinical preparation to meet the demands of caring for victims of a disaster in their town, city, county, or state."

'Lessons Learned' from Experts in Disaster Preparedness

The articles were prepared by experts in the medical response to disastersincluding those with real-life experience with patient care in disaster situations. The special issue is freely available on the journal website: http://www.smajournalonline.com/

Adding authoritative commentary in the special issue is Dr. Harold Timboe
