dc.description.abstract Whilst collaborating with members of the emergency team, the emergency nurse plays a crucial role in the identification and care of patients with medical, surgical and injury related emergencies. In Africa, as well as all over the world, the practice of emergency nursing is extremely challenging. In November 2011, an international emergency nursing workgroup (both academic and clinical) was convened in Cape Town, South Africa, to explore the development of a framework for emergency nursing practice in Africa. The resultant framework has implications for nursing education and training, continuing education, and staffing at both the institutional and regional levels throughout the African continent and possibly further afield. en_ZA

En Afrique, mais aussi partout dans le monde, la pratique des soins infirmiers d’urgence est extreˆmement difficile. En novembre 2011, un groupe de travail international sur les soins infirmiers d’urgence (a` la fois univertaire et clinique) s’est re´uni au Cap, en Afrique du Sud, pour e´tudier le developpement d’un cadre relatif a` la pratique des soins infirmiers d’urgence en Afrique. Le cadre qui en est ressorti a des re´percussions sur l’enseignement et la formation en soins infirmiers, la fomation continue, et la dotation en personnel a` des niveaux institutionnel et re´gional sur l’ensemble du continent africain, voire au-dela`. en_ZA
