This webinar covered:
  • Current knowledge regarding disability-focused registries as an effective planning and response solution.
  • The diverse and complex elements which make up operating and sustaining registries including funding, administration, focus, recruitment of potential users, enrollment, disclaimers, education efforts, data management (information collected, privacy, refreshing-maintenance, storage and retrieval), and response force commitments.
  • Research that comprehensively examines such registry elements as costs; sustainability; effectiveness (successes and failures), geographic, event specific and scale of event specific issues; and / or the essentials of promising practices of these efforts and outcomes.
