The Flinders University Research Program for Disaster Nursing Centre is located at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. The Centre’s mission is to enhance research, development and the recognition of the nursing contribution to disaster preparedness and response.
The Centre’s goals are to enhance nursing practice through the development of ICNP® with a focus on specific areas of practice where the School of Nursing and Midwifery has expertise. Initially the goals will concentrate on disaster nursing, including strengthening communities through primary nursing care. The centre will be developing an ICNP® catalogue for disaster nursing harmonized with the WADEM and National Library of Medicine-led terminology consensus project. Another goal is to collaborate with ICN and ICNP® Centres for guidance and support in the development of the ICNP® catalogue for disaster nursing. The centre will update the catalogue regularly so as to reflect current concepts and developments in disaster nursing.
