The quality of care for people in emergency and disaster situations is conditioned by the updating of the knowledge of the professionals who care for them. Learn how to manage processes, identify and initially assist victims and coordinate their transport to specialized care centers"

Terrorism, armed conflicts, seismic and climatological phenomena cause thousands of victims around the world every year, making it necessary to take a specific and in-depth approach to the management, organization and health care of catastrophes, as well as to have health care personnel with specialized training to be able to respond to these circumstances and to all those affected.

Nurses must know how to respond adequately to the evolution of scientific and technological knowledge and their scope of action in the different healthcare systems by constantly updating their procedures, both inside and outside the hospital environment, as well as in situations of multiple casualty incidents or NRBC (Nuclear, Radiological, Biological or Chemical) terrorism. 

The health system must guarantee that nursing professionals are trained to meet this demand, and this is only possible through refresher programs focused on the latest trends and based on scientific evidence. 

The European Society of Emergency Medicine believes that providing high quality emergency care requires nurses with specialized training in the emergency context, as this is the most effective way (in clinical and economic terms) to provide high quality care during the initial critical phases of emergency patient care. 

This program is designed so that the nursing professional can update their knowledge and skills to deal with guarantees to the patient in an emergency situation in the out-of-hospital setting and manage the disaster context.

Through this Postgraduate Diploma you will be able to update your knowledge in emergency patient care and disaster management, and thus improve the prognosis, reducing the sequelae and complications of the victims"
