What would be expected of you as a nurse if disaster struck? What do we mean by “disaster”? What is YOUR disaster management plan? Don’t wait to find out the answers! Attend this conference to hear stories from actual disasters and discover:
All countries experience disasters of some kind and they are usually unpredictable. These include bush fires, floods, and terrorist attacks. They are highly disruptive and usually cause chaos, suffering, and death. In any such event, nurses are likely to be called upon to step up and act. They may be required to perform different roles to those of their daily work. Although most hospitals or workplaces will have an emergency management plan, understanding the bigger picture of disasters – including the essential practicalities and nursing skills required – will increase overall preparedness, disaster responsiveness, and personal resilience.
The purpose of this conference is to improve nurses’ professional preparedness in regard to disasters and their management.
