Week 5 DQ 1 Question: Throughout this course, you have viewed the "Diary of Medical Mission Trip" videos dealing with the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Reflect on this natural disaster by answering the following questions: Propose one example of a nursing intervention related to the disaster from each of the following levels: primary prevention, secondary prevention, and tertiary prevention. Provide innovative examples that have not been discussed by a previous student. Under which phase of the disaster do the three proposed interventions fall? Explain why you chose that phase. With what people or agencies would you work in facilitating the proposed interventions and why? Link to the "Diary of Medical Mission Trip" videos: Response: From the video of Haiti, it would be so hard for the Haitians in that area to prepare for a natural disaster because it looked like they did not have many resources to begin with. These people may not have had enough food, water, medicine or first aid kit to save for an emergency or natural disaster. After a natural disaster has occurred, it’s important to get people to safety and treat those who are injured to prevent complications.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
