Abstract:

Session presented on: Thursday, July 25, 2013

Purpose: ,' Disasters are the ultimate test of health care responders' and communities capability to provide care to those in need.' Nurses play an essential role in disaster response and are often the single largest group of responders in any major disaster. 'Educating disaster health care responders on the essential elements of MCI management will improve our response to disasters. Evaluating these education programs for validity and role specific educational strengths and opportunities for improvement will advance the science of disaster response management.

Methods: ,' Data were collected from 70 participants completed a 2-day ADMR course held in Hong Kong in 2012.' Pretest/posttest and course evaluation were used to measure the extent to which interprofessional participants perceive, rapidly learn, and apply basic concepts of disaster medicine.'

Results: and'Conclusions: 'There was no significant difference in knowledge scores among the three role groups (nurses, physicians, other professions).' Participants attended the ADMR course demonstrated significantly increase in knowledge on key principles of MCI management for medical disaster response. Utilizing what we know from past disasters, a standardized educational framework on MCI management for disaster medical response was created to guide health care responders preparing and responding to disasters effectively and in term ensure reducing the mortality and morbidity caused by the disaster.' Educating disaster health care responders on the essential elements of MCI management will improve our response to disasters. 'Findings of this analysis will provide data specific to roles and critical elements to improve future MCI educational offerings and support national guidelines for disaster health care responders specifically for nursing.
