Comments After I had nursing foundation education and some clinical work experience in Japan, I had studied from undergraduate (bridging course to be a RN in Australia) to doctoral course at Flinders University in Adelaide. I have been involved in disaster nursing and health since. While I was working at Flinders University, I had worked as a Consultant at WHO Kobe Centre to support the 3rd World Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction which was held in Sendai. I believe that it is more important to communicate each other from non-disaster period so that we can work better when it is a disaster situation. My key word is to work and collaborate GLOCAL.
