Supplement 4: PERRCs - Public Health Systems Research to Strengthen Preparedness and Response

Find another Issue

Public Health Reports is pleased to publish this October 2014 special supplement presenting the research generated by the PERRCs demonstrating the value of public health research that collectively advances our thinking and understanding of how to improve our public health system’s preparedness for and response to disasters. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Outcomes from the Federal Investment in Public Health Systems Research to Strengthen Preparedness and Response,”reflects a confluence of three disciplinary trends in the field: (1) the application of methods, frameworks, and analytical strategies from the evolving field of public health systems and services research (PHSSR) to the specialized practice domain of PHPR; (2) a move, generally, toward more rigorous study design within the field of public health emergency preparedness and response research; and (3) the influence of themes and analytical strategies from more established fields, such as social science-oriented disaster research, psychometrics, and operations research.
