Nursing leadership during the disaster continuum or public health emergency will require significant creativity and vision, addressing the following issues: · Leadership: Who will be the leaders and what competencies will they need ? Effective leadership in Disaster Management requires personal integrity, strength, flexibility, creativity and use of collaborative approaches. · Roles and Functions: Disaster Nursing requires new strategies in order for nurses to render care in non-traditional care settings, to potentially large numbers of patients, while under great stress and with limited resources. · Policy Development: Nurses need to understand and participate in the policy development process in respect to disaster preparedness. · Government Organization: How will changes in the structure of the federal government impact the health care system and the Federal Disaster Response Plan? · Public Health: How will changes in the structuree of the American public health system impact nursing? · Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: Close collaboration with public health colleagues will play a critical role in achieving health outcomes for populations affected by disasters. · Quality Care: How can we find a way to realistically provide quality care in the case of a major mass casualty event? In the event of a major disaster, where will the nurses come from to care for these patients? · Evidence-based Practice: Where do we need to be going in disaster nursing and who will be the disaster nurse researchers? · Education: What are the educational needs for nurses? · Critical Thinking Skills: Why is critical thinking important to disaster nursing? · Opportunities: Our national nursing workforce must address professional emergency preparedness- before a disaster occurs. Attention to issues such as leadership, educational preparation, nursing science, and establishing or enhancing collaborative relationships with other disaster providers is paramount if we are to be ready when disaster strikes.
