Core Competencies for Disaster Nursing

This research aims to clarify fundamental competencies for disaster nursing practice to be achieved upon completion of fundamental nursing education. This research process comprises the following stages.
 
Stage 1: Development of the framework

The framework of fundamental competencies was developed based on the framework described in a report of the nursing education study group of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan ("Achievement Targets for Undergraduate Students upon Graduation, toward Enhanced Practical Nursing Skills and Abilities") as well as the "ICN Framework of Competencies for Generalist Nurses," developed by the International Council of Nurses and "Educational Competencies for Registered Nurses Responding to Mass Casualty Incidents," developed by the International Nursing Coalition for Mass Casualty Education (INCMCE).
 
Stage 2: Identification and structuring of the contents

Stage 2 is to identify and structure the contents of fundamental competencies. The contents were identified and structured through repeated discussions among researchers who have experience in disaster nursing practice, based on existing documents, disaster nursing activity reports, and disaster nursing care guidelines developed by the Nursing Care Methods Development Project of the COE Program.
 
Framework and contents of fundamental competencies

Fundamental competencies are expressed as the results of integrating knowledge, skills and judgment, and in line with the definition of "Competency" by ICN.a Fundamental competencies are roughly classified into five categories, as shown in Figure 1. Each of these five fields can be further classified into two to seven subcategories. Each of these subcategories comprises detailed items that explain the contents.

a ICN defines "competency" as a level of activity that expresses an effective application of knowledge, skill, and judgment.
