    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.

  3. Caregiver Self-Assessment Questionnaire
    Source: American Medical Association (AMA) (AMA)
    Date Published: 7/2014
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: The Caregiver Health Self-Assessment Questionnaire was originally developed and tested by the American Medical Association. The questionnaire can help caregivers look at their own behavior and health risks. With their healthcare provider's help, this questionnaire can also help caregivers make decisions that may benefit both the caregiver and the older person. The questionnaire can help healthcare providers to identify and provide preventive services to an at-risk population that may be hidden. It may also improve communication and enhance the healthcare provider-caregiver health partnership. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  7. Network of Relationships Inventory (NRI)
    Source: University of Denver (DU) (DU)
    Date Published: 2012
    Format: Text
    Annotation: The Network of Relationships Inventory (NRI) is able to examine a broad array of relationship characteristics across a number of different types of personal relationships. The most important feature of the NRI is that participants use the same set of items to describe their relationship with each of several members of their social network (e.g., mother, father, sibling, friend, romantic partner, and teacher). This feature results in a matrix of scores that are useful both for describing mean-level differences among different types of relationships and for describing each type of relationship in terms of a profile of qualities. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.
