CONCEPTUAL MODELLING FOR MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH IN CASE OF EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

Tereza Otčenášková, Vladimír Bureš, Pavel Čech

Abstract

Emergency situations such as biological or chemical incidents require prompt decision making. There are however only a limited set of formally declared procedures and principles of how to tackle such incidents. The aim of the paper is to introduce specific techniques of conceptual modelling that form a framework of decision making during emergency situations. The paper will present an ongoing research that is focused on identification of proper response procedures and responsible authorities during the incident and unification of knowledge from do-main experts on bio-terrorism, epidemiology and medicine as well as procedures that are given in national and regional recovery plans.
