The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health produced this pediatric online lesson on responding to an unaccompanied child in a disaster. During this lesson, learners will absorb core material and apply their knowledge in three case studies. Learners can also access and complete a downloadable reference card for use during a disaster. This course is accredited for Continuing Education credit (list of available professions is below). Access the online lesson at the link above.

This card can be for your reference now, as well as in the online lesson in the future. To learn how to use this lesson for in-person training, read Ten Ideas for Face-to-Face Training .
