Role of critical care nurses in disasters

I presented to a group of students undertaking postgraduate studies in Critical Care Nursing at the University of Canberra. My presentation focused on both the in-hospital and out-of-hospital role of critical care nurses, in disasters. The presentation was a superficial overview of a number of issues associated with the health effects of a disaster, and the role of nurses in these circumstances

This presentation covered topics such as: the nurse role, willingness to assist during a disaster, disaster triage concepts, education for nurses in disaster health and other topics of consideration for emergency and intensive care nurses.
