摘要Background: Disaster risk literacy refers to the ability to identify, understand, interpret and communicate disaster risk-related information. Whilst literature review indicates that health literacy is directly associated with health outcomes, there is currently a literature gap on the predictors of disaster health risk literacy and how risk literacy might be associated with the uptake of first aid trainings for better community disaster preparedness. Targeting at Hong Kong urban population, main study objectives are: i) to assess the disaster risk literacy; ii) to examine prevalence and characteristics of first-aid training (physical and mental); iii) to evaluate perceived needs for first-aid training; iv) to explore the relationship among disaster risk literacy, self-perceived disaster preparedness and first-aid training. This paper reports on the findings of the pilot study conducted in April 2012.
