Abstract [en]

This is a Minor Field Study (MFS) which is a scholarship financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The study was held in 2007 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and is based upon retrospective qualitative interviews with five Bachelor nurses who experienced the disaster work during the earthquake 27th of May, 2006. The aim of the study is to explore the experiences, feelings and thoughts of Bachelor nurses who were involved in this natural disaster. The interview, transcription and analyse work were made one year after the earthquake were a qualitative content analysis method was used. Two group interviews were held at the University of Gadjah Mada. The result is based upon the respondents’ stories from these group interviews. In the result are the respondents’ experience, feelings and thoughts presented in themes which are put in three phases: before, during and after the earthquake. Previous studies are based on western disaster work and they are of a quantitative aspect. Finding qualitative studies from a helper’s view and especially from developing countries are difficult. This Minor Field Study increases the understanding for helpers’ feelings and thoughts during a natural disaster. It can easily be used by rescue personnel and hospital staff as a preparing literature of what they might experience before, during and after the work of a natural disaster.
