    Title: VA Disaster Resilience Survey of Community Dwelling Veterans; VA Form 10-21086(NR).

    OMB Control Number: 2900—NEW.

    Type of Review: New collection.

    Abstract: The proposed study is being conducted by the Veterans Emergency Management Evaluation Center (VEMEC) of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The mission of VEMEC is to promote the health and social welfare of America's Veterans and the Nation by initiating and coordinating projects aimed at developing evidence-based practices for use in mitigating against, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from national emergencies and natural disasters. In so doing, VEMEC helps to ensure timely access to high-quality health care for our nation's veterans. The proposed study will be a one-time study of all VA patients in the United States. We will survey a sample of Veterans who at the time of fielding received care from any VA healthcare system in the U.S. at least once in the past 24 months. Health status, socioeconomic status, and other factors can impact a Veteran's resiliency/vulnerability during major disaster.
