The Goal

Need for Program

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.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this conference is to improve nurses’ professional preparedness in regard to disasters and their management

Your learning outcomes:

Use knowledge of the “big picture” of disaster management to provide effective clinical leadership in times of disaster
Confidently prioritise your nursing care for maximum effect in a disaster situation
Apply holistic care that takes into account the psychological implications of a disaster once the dangers have passed
Participate in planning and post-incident debriefing to ensure effective disaster plans are maintained
