Military Nursing Care: Global Civilian Application
Learning Objective #1: Describe a framework for identifying areas for nursing research for civilian disaster response and translate lessons drawn from military nursing research to civilian disaster response.
Learning Objective #2: Describe interventions aimed at reducing family stress and strain on work demands of women. Outline nursing interventions directed towards patient empowerment.
Military Nursing Research has long contributed to the care of the wounded during wartime and disasters as well as care for the families who support service members. Many lessons learned from military nursing research and nursing care based on research have a direct application to civilian nursing care during a time of a civilian disaster response, the nursing shortage regarding how to balance work demands and family stress, as well as what is the best way to provide nursing care to patients living with long-term health conditions. This presentation is directed towards translating military nursing research into civilian nursing practice.
