To combine D number theory and decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) to identify the critical success factors (CSFs) in emergency managementTo enhance the efficiency of emergency management optimization.
To solve the problems of heterogeneity and disorder in the cross-domain integration processes for offsite nuclear emergency response, the integrated decision-making framework of the CDIRS spaces based on Space Mapping and Semantic Web is proposed.Under this framework, the method of feature mapping and space modeling, interoperable mediating and interoperability verifying, ordered integrating and reasoning, which are key steps of the CDIRS method, are presented
Development and evaluation of ontology for intelligent decision support in medical emergency management for mass gatherings
We describe the application of the ontology within the overall mass gatheringmanagement as an integral part of knowledge management for runninga safe event . An example of a case-based reasoning (CBR)intelligent decision support implementation of this architecture isalso presented. (pg 1193)
A questionnaire study with 170 Philippine nurses.The paper describe the results of a questionnaire and compare based on literature the preparation of nurses in the Philippine and the assessment of the knowledgebase of the nurse.
Health worker and policy-maker perspectives on use of intramuscular artesunate for pre-referral and definitive treatment of severe malaria at health posts in Ethiopia.
This was a qualitative exploratory study that used in-depth interviews to collect data on the perspectives of health workers, and policy-makers on the use of intramuscular artesunate as a pre-referral and definitive treatment for severe malaria at health posts.
In this paper, the relations between emergency management and GIS-aided decision support system will be explained.In addition to this, some information will be given about (S)DSS structures, the role of SDSS in emergency management, and applications related to GIS-aided spatial decision support systems.
Rallying the Troops: A Four-Step Guide to Preparing a Residency Program for Short-Term Weather Emergencies.
No experiment.The authors outline a four-step process in preparing a residency program for an anticipated short-term weather emergency.
To propose using alternate boundary objects to incorporate reflective practises that can increase the utilisation of learning by embedding it in specific contexts. Helping project workers to think differently about the purpose and outcome of training attendance.Ensuring effective talent management for managers and developing managers with the added confidence and capacity to question the status quo and able to objectively evaluate the relevance of new frameworks and tools for better problem solving.
Experimental evaluation: Participants were asked to perform three tasks of incremental difficulty and to fill a post-task questionnaire using the eStoryS system.Three tasks to complete were related to the specific use of eStoryS in the domain of emergencies: Generic task, Required the use of a timeline to solve the task more efficientlyRequired the use of the story- board tool to collect information about the scenario.
