Abstract

It has been observed that healthcare workers, prehospital care providers, as well as other frontline responders, are often made responsible to be both willing and able to provide a timely response in the events of disaster. Even though Kuwait is situated in a politically conflicting zone where the country has witnessed several major incidents, prehospital care providers are still not given standardized preparation training to respond to these incidents of disaster. There is also a lack of evidence related to the ambulance staff’s preparedness status in Kuwait to manage disasters. Moreover, to evaluate the socio-contextual factors related to the implementation procedures of mass casualty training, limited studies have been conducted in the existing body of literature. Problem: This study has tried to address the problems or barriers that are undermining the preparedness of prehospital care providers under the events of disaster or mass causality by utilizing the PARIHS model.
