Title:
Preparing Volunteer Nurses for Public Health Emergencies in the USA
Abstract:
Preparing Volunteer Nurses for Public Health Emergencies in the USA
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Weiner, Betsy, PhD, RN, BC, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:Vanderbilt University School of Nursing
Title:Sr. Assoc. Dean for Educational Informatics
Co-Authors:Patricia A. Trangenstein, PhD, RN, BC; Jeffry Gordon, PhD; Linda D. Norman, DSN, RN, FAAN; Margaret Irwin, ND, RN
Several grants have been received to develop an online curriculum for nurses in emergency preparedness using the competencies developed by the International Nursing Coalition for Mass Casualty Education (INCMCE). This presentation will provide data to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of learning programs designed to educate nurses volunteering for service in their local community Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) or statewide volunteer nurses. Two types of learning programs will be compared: a face-to-face version and an online version, both of which will be designed using the principles of the national How People Learn (HPL) framework. Effectiveness of the learning programs will be determined by: mastering course content, following International Nursing Coalition for Mass Casualty (INCMCE) competencies, incorporating principles of the HPL framework, promoting course completion, and increasing clinical confidence. Efficiency will be measured by cost per student, time spent in completion, and convenience for student. Additional aims of the project will be to define user characteristics that predict selection of and effective/ efficient completion of learning programs, and to determine the adequacy of technology integration in learning emergency response content. The long term objective of this study is to provide quality educational materials for nurses volunteering in their local and regional communities, thereby improving the quality of health following emergency public health events in the USA.
