Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a possible tool for the use of a quantitative research method that can be applied in disaster medicine.

Method: Stepwise, using the technique of concept and process modelling, key processes in forms of performance indicators for command and control at disaster and major incidents were identified. A standard was linked to each indicator. Based in these indicators, an educational program was developed. In this program results from examinations were expressed in numbers and can thereby allow statistical methods to be applied.

Results: Application of this model on prehospital command and control demonstrated weak and strong points. The method has been implemented in 13 out 21 regions and is used as a quality control tool.

Conclusions: The use of performance indicators developed by using results from modelling processes could possibly serve as a tool for conducting quantitative research in disaster medicine.
