The effects of a disaster on healthcare can range from conditions that immediately besiege the system with large numbers of patients, to catastrophes that strain its long-term sustainability. Nurses, as frontline health professionals, must have an understanding of the situations they may face before, during and after a disaster and they must develop the skills and strategies to provide effective and immediate care. International Disaster Nursing is the first truly comprehensive and internationally focused resource to address the diversity of issues and myriad scenarios that nurses and other health personnel could encounter during a disaster event. This text defines the many roles of the nurse within a multidisciplinary team, and aids the implementation of the community's disaster plans in a crisis. With an alarming increase in the occurrence of disasters in the last decade, International Disaster Nursing is the hallmark text in the field.

We live in a world where disaster incidents are on the rise. From natural disasters to war and conflict to infectious diseases, being prepared for such events takes tremendous preparation and practice. Nurses are on the frontlines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster prep, response, and recovery. Further, too few nurse faculty have personal, real-world experience in responding to natural and man-made disasters. So, where to start? How do nurse faculty members fit one more thing into a course or curriculum? And how do nurses stay on top of their game when it comes to disaster and emergency preparedness? Designing and Implementing a Disaster Preparedness Curriculum: Readying Nurses for the Worst presents a curriculum blueprint for nurse educators that provides readers with the best practices for implementation while avoiding pitfalls and mistakes. Disaster preparation experts Sharon Stanley and Thola Wolanski help ensure that nursing students are as prepared as possible to respond to disasters, whether in their own neighborhoods or around the world, by giving nurse educators strategies and solutions for incorporating disaster preparedness into their curriculum.

Abstract: Background: Internationally there is an increasing amount of peer-reviewed literature pertaining to disaster nursing. The literature includes personal anecdotes, reflections, and accounts of single case studies. Furthermore, issues such as the willingness of nurses to assist in disasters, the role of nurses in disasters, leadership, competencies, and educational preparedness for nurses have been the focus of the literature. Aim: The aim of this research was to determine the international research priorities for disaster nursing. Method: This research used a three-round Delphi technique. The first round used a face-to-face workshop to generate research statements with nursing members of the World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine (WADEM). The second and third rounds included the ranking of statements on a 5-point Likert scale with nursing members of WADEM and the World Society of Disaster Nursing (WSDN). Statements that achieved a mean of four or greater were considered a priority and progressed. Results: Participants were from multiple countries. Research statements were generated in the areas of: education, training, and curriculum; psychosocial; strategy, relationship, and networking; and clinical practice. Psychosocial aspects of disaster nursing ranked the highest, with five statements appearing in the top ten research areas, followed by statements relating to: education, training, and curriculum; clinical practice; and finally, strategy, relationship, and networking. Conclusions: Future disaster nursing research should focus on the area of psychosocial aspects of disaster nursing, in particular, both the psychosocial needs of a disaster-affected community and the psychosocial wellbeing of nurses who assist in disaster health activities.
