Integrative Review Virtual Disaster Training
Farra, S. and Miller, E. T. (2013). Integrative Review: Virtual Disaster Training. Journal of Nursing Education and Practice. 3(3):93-101.
The authors conducted a literature review of the published evidence from 2005-2012 related to the use of virtual reality for disaster training of healthcare workers. They concluded that too few studies had been done, and that future studies must measure long-term retention of knowledge; ability to respond to different types of disasters; and performance in different tasks, such as triage, decontamination, and transport.
