Tracking and Reunification of Children in Disasters: A Lesson and Reference for Health Professionals


This online lesson provides steps on responding to an unaccompanied child at a disaster scene. After thoroughly reviewing the lesson’s core material, learners will then solve three case studies with their acquired knowledge. The lesson also contains a downloadable reference card that the learner can use during an all-hazards event.  The National Center designed this learning object for a wide range of health workers. NCDMPH is currently working on their next learning object which focuses on radiation exposure in children.  The tracking and reunification lesson is available at the NCDMPH
