Introduction to Risk and Crisis Communications

The tragedies of 9/11 marked a turning point in the perception of the word “crisis,” especially to people in the United States who had never experienced such an attack on their own soil. The attacks were also a turning point in the perceptions of crisis management and crisis communications.A crisis management/communications plan saved the lives of numerous people in the World Trade Center (WTC) on that fateful day. Rick Rescola was head of security for Morgan Stanley, which occupied 40 floors in one of the WTC towers. After the 1993 terrorist attack on the WTC, Rescola formed a crisis management team to try to avert an attack or to help employees survive another attack. The team members were in agreement that another attack would occur, and that it would probably occur at the WTC because of the symbolism of the towers being the tallest in the United States.Team Rescola, as it was called, determined that the next attack would not be a ground attack, because the garage was protected after the 1993 incident. They even took a test flight around the buildings and predicted the attack would be by air.Crisis communications was necessary to convince employees and managers that preparations needed to be made and that training for evacuation was necessary, and to explain how it would be done. Subsequently, there were drills. Rescola had lighting put in the stairways, and every person knew where the stairways were.When the planes struck, WTC security advised all persons that it was safer to stay in the building. Rescola and his team began to evacuate employees. A glitch occurred in that one of the stairways was blocked by debris. Visibility was hampered either by smoke or darkness or both. Survivors and some of Rescola’s team members, consultants who were not in the building at the time, told the History Channel that team Rescola went to each floor and yelled, “Is anyone here?” If so, they led them out by alternate stairways. They say the team saved 95 percent of the total number of Morgan Stanley employees.However, there was not enough time for them to reach every floor. Rescola and some of his team members died when the buildings collapsed. His wife said, when she saw the buildings go down on television, she knew her husband was there still trying to get everyone out.Questions1. Consider the Rescola story, what should offices in skyscrapers and large buildings do other than plan for evacuations?2. Imagine the employees who objected to the training: what would be persuasive messages to them?3. The 1993 attack was considered a prodrome by Rescola. Why didn’t others see it?4. In a crisis situation, using the image restoration theory, how could an organization determine which publics should receive which messages? Why would you send different messages to different publics?Must be at least 250 words supported by at least two references

1) Complications of CancerClass the paper due this week focuses on cancer and asks you to discuss complications of cancer and the side effects of treatment. It is important that you differentiate between the two. Complications are caused by the cancer and not related to medication or treatment. Side effects are a result of treatment. To earn credit for one substantial reply, provide an example of a general complication caused by cancer and discuss the pathophysiology why it occurs. I do not want an essay on cancer. To earn credit provide only the information requested and share your source. Hint ourpathophysiology text should be usedto answer this question and complete your paper not the American Cancer Society. We introduce the ACS site as a source you would share with your patients.One   common complication of CancerRelated   pathophysiology (why It occurs)Current   scholarly source designed for health care professionalsReference2) Our readings discuss that cancer has modifiable (behavior, social, environment) and unmodifiable risk factors (genetic, age, gender). In your paper you will need to include both modifiable and non modifiable factors.Research a type of cancer and share two causes of the cancer,state if they are modifiable or non modifiable  Please do not post “smoking causes lung cancer”, do research and learn something beyond what the consumer knows. If you want to cover lung cancer research which types of lung cancer are related to smoking. This will be a great thread to get ideas for the paper.Type   of CancerCause   of the type of cancercause   of the cancerReferenceOptional CAT #3 interventions for side effects caused by Cancer treatmentClass there are several types of treatments from cancer including surgery, radiation, various chemotherapies, immune therapy. Each has side effects, some for which the patient can apply interventions and some which require nursing or medical interventions. Choose a treatment for cancer, list one major complication and provide two nursing or medical interventions to prevent, lesson  or treat the side effect. Use the table below to earn credit.Your source should be a pathophysiology text, med surg text or other source designed for health care professionals.Cancer TreatmentSide Effect of TreatmentNursing/ medical intervention to prevent or treat it.12Reference
