Abstract:
The purpose of this Honors Thesis is to investigate database use to improve Emergency Preparedness planning and response activities in the field of Public Health. This investigation is relevant to the Public Health field since databases are often utilized to track populations, illnesses, resources, identify trends, and to support Emergency Preparedness. A well-developed database can be used to improve response times, improve response scope, meet operational needs and maximize efficient use of resources. This thesis will give background on the my work in Santa Cruz County, my results from helping to shape the database they use, describe how the database was evaluated with an exercise to test it's capability to assist Emergency Preparedness and my recommendations for continuing this project.
