Disaster Management for Faith Community Nurses
Cost: $15 Members, $35 Nonmembers
Climate change has made all communities vulnerable to natural disasters. In this two-hour session, participants will review the different components of the disaster management plan and discuss the role of the FCN in each section: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery. FCNs will discuss different tools to address these areas and share ideas with each other on ways to prevent and prepare members of the faith community from disasters, as well as steps the FCN can take to respond and help members of the faith community to recover from disasters. FCNs will also discuss how to address the emotional and spiritual crises that can occur after a disaster. Participants will be able to provide a community assessment of state of readiness for a natural disaster, have the knowledge of how to educate the faith community to prepare for a natural disaster, and are able to provide holistic care in disaster response and recovery.
This program will be January 29, 2022, at 12:00-2:00 Eastern Time, 11:00-1:00 Central, 10-12 Mountain, 9-11 Pacific.
It will be held via ZOOM. 2.0 contact hours of CNE has been requested from Alabama State Nurses Association, an approver of continuing nursing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission of Accreditation (ANCC). Attendees will receive their evaluations for CNEs after the course is completed.
