Climate Change and Extreme Heat

September 20, 2018

This past summer we experienced extreme weather events. How did you cope during that time? Do you feel well prepared to address the health effects associated with extreme heat?

As nurses, we have a specific role to play in caring for patients during times of extreme heat events. What can you do to help mitigate the harmful effects of extreme heat of the patients you care for?

The number of hot days is expected to increase in the coming years.
