MetadataShow full item record
Other Language Versions
The use of scenarios with parallel perspectives in a simulated health emergency helps participants to see that the exercise is appropriately realistic for all participants involved—both health practitioners and members of indigenous communities... The objective of this document is to adapt the rationale and the methodology for conducting a simulation exercise so that the discussion leads to improved disaster risk management, post-emergency interventions, and health outcomes for indigenous peoples. To achieve this objective, hypothetical scenarios are developed in which the same facts and occurrences are presented, both from a traditional perspective as well as from a perspective that reflects an indigenous cosmovision.
