    Annotation: This 56-page document identifies a list of common post-disaster epidemiologic indicators for pregnant women, postpartum women, and infants. It identifies salient conditions (e.g., infant feeding, gender-based violence) and outcomes (e.g., maternal and birth outcomes) to be monitored via surveillance or post-disaster data collection; promotes use of consistent measures across post-disaster studies; and recommends building scientific knowledge regarding disaster effects on these women and infants. This tool includes a list of proposed indicators and suggested questions for measuring them. The question index is located at page 21.

    Source: U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) (DOD)
    Date Published: 2012
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: The purpose of the Military Acute Concussion Evaluation (MACE) from the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury is to evaluate a person in whom a concussion is suspected. The MACE is used to confirm the diagnosis and assess the current clinical status. Any one who was dazed, confused, "saw stars," or lost consciousness, even momentarily, as a result of an explosion/blast, fall, motor vehicle crash, or other event involving abrupt head movement, a direct blow to the head, or other head injury is an appropriate person for evaluation using the MACE. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  9. Asthma Control Test (ACT)
    Source: Optum, Inc
    Date Published: 2004
    Format: Text
    Annotation: The development of the Asthma Control Test (ACT) follows a paradigm shift in the treatment of asthma, from a focus on asthma severity to asthma control. Specifically, ACT helps identify and detect asthma patients who are not well controlled. It was designed with input from asthma experts who helped establish cut-point scores to improve the clinical utility of the survey. Minimal important differences (MID) were also established for the ACT to assist in the interpretation of the significance of score changes over time. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.
