Abstract

This special report was prepared as a white paper for the First World Health Organization (WHO) Consultation on Nursing and Midwifery Contributions in Emergencies held in Geneva on 22–24 November 2006. Pertinent issues related to research of nurses and midwives were identified based on prior international conferences. Using this information, gaps between the current and proposed state of preparedness research activities were identified. Global perspective recommendations were made for consideration by the WHO and other nursing organizations. Finally, possible discussion questions were posed that were used during the consultation, but could also be used in other international nursing conferences.
