There is growing demand for professionals with experience in catastrophes and non-hospital emergencies, and therefore a need for training in this area. For many years it was normal practice for accident victims to be taken to hospital accident and emergency units in poorly-equipped ambulances manned by non-professionals.

However, recent research conducted on both hospital and non-hospital emergencies has shown that high-quality care given during the first hour after an accident is fundamental to preventing or mitigating its effects.

This has led to the creation of a series of new hospital and non-hospital emergency services. These services have had a great impact on the population and their use has increased, as shown by the number of actions carried out in recent years, and the extremely serious nature of some of the situations dealt with. All this adds up to a greater need for nursing professionals working in this field: with good theoretical and practical training and able to cope with new situations through reflective practice.
