||The impacts of disasters on a global scale provides a backdrop to discussion on the growth of aid relief and the associated contribution of disasters nursing at an international level. Nurses care for individuals and communites worldwide, at all levels, and across all phases of a disaster. Effective disaster response at an international level requires nurses to have knowledge and skills for work in other cultures. Such competency facilitates care of individuals and communities and helps with functioning in an international team. This chapter makes a case for education and training within an international group. Specific areas such as communication, transport, and establishing priorities in the care of victims of disaster are discussed. The notable dearth in nursing research literature on the topic of disaster nursing means there is an urgent need to develop an empirical base for practice. This chapter also presents the idea that selected grand theories of nursing are valuable in orienting practitioners and researchers to the belief systems that are applicable to the goals of international disaster nursing (AU)|
