  1. Mortality in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria: Household Survey Instrument
    Source: Harvard University, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
    Date Published: 5/29/2018
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: To develop a more accurate estimate of deaths attributed to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, a team led by Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health epidemiologists conducted a randomized community household survey in Puerto Rico in 2017-2018. Respondents were asked about displacement, infrastructure loss, and causes of death. The survey instrument can be found in Section I of the Supplementary Appendix in Kishore N, Marques D, Mahmud A, et al. Mortality in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. N Engl J Med. DOI: 10.1056/NEJMsa1803972. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  5. BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Module
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    Date Published: 3/2/2016
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: The BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) module was adapted from the original CDC-Kaiser ACE Study and is used to collect information on child abuse and neglect, and household challenges. Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. The ACE score, a total sum of the different categories of ACEs reported by participants, is used to assess cumulative childhood stress. Study findings repeatedly reveal a graded dose-response relationship between ACEs and negative health and well-being outcomes across the life course. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  9. Rapid Acquisition of Pre- and Post-Incident Disaster Data (RAPIDD) Study Protocol
    Source: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences [National Institutes of Health] (NIEHS)
    Date Published: 7/16/2015
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: This 62-page document provides a pre-planned research study protocol to be used for rapidly implementing a new study at the time of a disaster. The protocol provides the information and documents for creating a research registry of disaster response workers who are rostered before or immediately after deployment to a disaster area. The protocol provides the steps for gathering sociodemographic, health status, occupational exposure, and lifestyle information of the cohort before or immediately after deployment to a disaster area. The protocol includes documents needed to conduct the research such as an informed consent form, enrollment information and questionnaires. The goal is to have all documents and steps developed before a disaster for rapid deployment at the time of a disaster. Researchers may also use this protocol as a model for developing additional ready-to-use protocols for other disaster research efforts....[more] [less]

  10. Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA)
    Source: Action Against Hunger (ACF)
    Date Published: 7/9/2015
    Format: Text
    Annotation: The purpose of the Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA) for Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) is to make nutrition assessments and mortality rate calculations in emergency situations as easy and reliable as possible. It focuses on the most important indicators (anthropometric and mortality data), checks the plausibility of the entered data, and gives out an automatic report. Since the software cannot explain why children are malnourished or mortality rates are high, the results of the survey have to be complemented with other information (e.g., from the Food Security part of ENA or discussions with key informants); collection of this additional information on the household level has a high risk to reduce the quality of the anthropometric and mortality data. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.
