Resource Summary: Recent events have highlighted the importance of planning and preparing for the continuity of health care services in the event of emergency or disaster. Following disaster, a thorough emergency response allows health centers to shifts gears to address the longer-term health consequences of disaster. Providing health care services to underserved populations, like agricultural workers, poses a host of challenges to service providers under the best of circumstances, including isolated rural work and home locations, group housing, substandard housing, mobility, limited English proficiency, cultural factors, transportation, documentation status, and poverty. The significance of these factors is undoubtedly magnified under emergency circumstances.

Resource Details: Clinicians can serve an important role in helping patients to avoid disruption of their health care needs in an emergency by discussing safety and other prevention measures with them. Protocols which focus on the ability to prioritize needs and to be able to function with limited human and material resources must be developed, and adequate time for training and drills must be allocated. This resource offers critical issues for clinicians to consider in planning for the care of migrant populations in an emergency.
