The role of new graduate nurses in disasters (workshop)

Shane Lenson assisted me in presenting this workshop to graduate nurses at Calvary Health Care ACT during a study day focusing on 'codes'. The workshop focused on 'code brown' or external disasters / emergencies. The workshop comprised of a short oral presentation (above) followed by a number of workshop activities. The activities focused on the role a graduate nurse may undertake during disasters. Broadly this included:
• Prioritisation of care
• Accommodating surge capacity
• Communication
• Business continuity (or continuing adequate patient care) during power, water and/or oxygen supply shortages.
