Telenursing in incidents and disasters: a systematic review of the literature.

Nejadshafiee M, Bahaadinbeigy K, Kazemi M, et al. J Emerg Nurs. 2020.

This systematic review explored the use of telehealth and the role of telenursing for managing the strain on the healthcare workforce during disaster scenarios, such as natural disasters, mass-casualty incidents, and simulated disasters. Based on findings from 17 studies, this review concluded that telehealth can help victims of disasters to access care, particularly when specialists are unavailable. The review did not identify any studies assessing telenursing care during disasters.
