|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding pharmacy services in emergency management. Background and objectives: Disasters are fundamentally human made, a function of where and how people choose or are forced to live. The trigger may be a natural phenomenon, but its impact is governed by the prior vulnerability of the affected community. Emergency management involves four phases: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. The project aimed at enhancing the local emergency management through the input of the hospital pharmacist by developing and validating pharmacy services, in the form of procedural flowcharts and checklists. These algorithms were designed to meet the identified pharmaceutical needs in a group of defined emergencies.|
