64,19 € Lieferbar ab 09.04.2017


This book focuses on the management of major and large-scale emergencies and natural disasters through the use of telemedicine and ICT devices with the aim of highlighting the associated challenges and concerns and the means of overcoming them. The response to international crises and big emergencies needs perfect and prompt organization. On such occasions, care cannot be delivered in the traditional way. Professionals and volunteers require coordination and the support of experts who often cannot reach the location of the crisis. The use of ICT can help to solve the problems that arise in such situations. This book will be an excellent source of useful practical information for developers and decision-makers who are responsible for devising programs of intervention, coordination, and prevention in relation to major emergencies. It will also be invaluable for those who have an active role in the implementation of programs of action and prevention and the delivery of care. The author is an expert with years of practical experience in the field who has worked as an advisor for international institutions.
