Under review


The availability of information and its transfer is the foundation of any effective crisis response. This research uses a case study of a past crisis response to help understand the flow of information and how it becomes knowledge. The case study used is the 2007 Australian Equine Influenza outbreak. Lead health, government and industry experts active during the time of the outbreak were interviewed and their answers were analysed from the perspective of knowledge management.
