The nature of a disaster determines the response and future preparedness. The geographic scope, number of populations affected, and uniqueness of the threat may present unique difficulties in disaster preparedness and emergency management. Preparing for and addressing emergencies effectively is a joint responsibility of all the stakeholders. On the basis of their capabilities, responsibilities, and priorities, each stakeholder plays a role in responding to the emergency, which contributes to the overall response.
Before you begin working on the assignment, review the module learning resources. Use the module resources to choose one interagency recovery coordination case study, which you will use to complete this assignment.
In this assignment, you will analyze your selected case study to understand the magnitude of the emergency, the involvement of stakeholders, challenges with the emergency planning, effectiveness of the plan, and areas for improvement. On the basis of your analysis, you will write an assessment summarizing the agency or agencies’ involvement in the disaster response efforts and make recommendations for future improvement to the federal agency. By being able to explain how federal agencies address stakeholder needs during an emergency, including how competing priorities between federal and state agencies impact local-level stakeholders and how stakeholders influence disaster recovery and preparedness plans, you will be even more prepared to successfully complete Project Two.
Choose and analyze one interagency recovery coordination case study provided in the module resources. Then, submit a document containing both an assessment report and a recommendation letter to the head of the federal agency involved in the disaster recovery.
You must cite at least three additional outside sources to support your assessment and recommendations. You may not use any of the module resources to support your claims (with the exception of the case study you chose from the module resources). For additional help with completing this assignment, refer to the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing – Graduate item in the Start Here module. You may also use the Online Writing Center, located in the Academic Support module.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Background of Disaster or Emergency: Briefly describe the background of the selected disaster or emergency case study from the healthcare perspective.

How does the federal agency’s involvement impact the overall emergency response management in the chosen case study?
How did coordination between the federal agency and other stakeholders positively and/or negatively impact the emergency response management?
Stakeholders’ Influence: Analyze the influence of stakeholders on the emergency preparedness policies. Consider the following questions in your response:
Who among the stakeholders led and/or influenced the emergency response management in the selected case study?
Who (federal, state, or local agencies), according to you, has a more significant impact on the emergency preparedness policies, and why?

Which three response efforts do you consider effective, and why?
Which three response efforts do you consider ineffective, and why?
Which of the stakeholders contributed more effectively than others, and why?
