New scenarios in accident and emergency nursing push us to propose new specialization programs that meet the real needs of experienced professionals, so that they can incorporate new advances into their daily practice”

Industrialization and technological development increase the probability of these disasters occurring. Terrorism, armed conflicts and seismic and climatological phenomena claim thousands of victims around the world every year. 

In an emergency disaster situation, material and human resources are insufficient, infrastructures are destroyed or seriously damaged etc. All this calls for a concrete and in-depth approach to the management, organization and health care of disasters. The most recent catastrophic events: the New York attacks of 9/11 in 2001, the tsunami in South East Asia in December 2004, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March 2011, etc. show us the need to rely on health professionals with specialized training and preparation. In these circumstances, these professionals need to be able to provide assistance to all the people affected by these situations.

The sick or injured person in need of urgent or emergency care presents acute symptoms, in various forms, which change and evolve in a short period of time. They could be fighting for their lives, depending on which organs are affected, and they may need rapid response care.  It is vital they receive specific assistance and care which can only be offered by qualified and specialized professionals, with the specific skills and knowledge required.   

Emergency nurses should also have broad knowledge of the resources and equipment available, as well as their uses and complications, so that they can be used in the each specific situation.

It is clear that the health system must guarantee that there are trained professionals to meet this demand and this is not possible if specific training is not provided. Therefore, we are obligated to offer our users all possible resources and to also provide quality care, given that this is necessary to reach a high skill level through our professional specialized training.
