Curriculum Recommendations for Educators & Trainers Working with Health Professionals

Curriculum Recommendations for Educators & Trainers Working with Health Professionals is a series of peer-reviewed disaster health curriculum recommendations designed by subject matter experts. These recommendations are targeted to educators and trainers working with health professionals.

Each curriculum recommendation consists of three tools to aid educators in tailoring disaster education:

  • Design process diagram: A step-by-step process for tailoring courses

  • Topical Overview: Summary of Recommended Topics

  • Learning Objective and Resource Table: Learning Objectives, Core Competencies, & Resources

The information found in the following documents is not a prescriptive curriculum, but rather a set of recommendations. Educators can tailor these recommendations for their particular needs or circumstances, selecting those learning objectives, topics, and resources which are appropriate to their learners’ needs, and the scope of their education and training programs.
