A Russian waterway cruise is an environment conducive for a US-Russian nursing conference. Facilitative leadership strategies are required to transform shared learning activities into a conference directed to promoting cultural sensitivity necessary for developing a shared understanding of practice and educational issues in each country. Such a leadership approach is integral to creating a conversational process that stimulates exploration of nursing concerns and can further collaboration in scholarship, practice and education. This presentation’s purpose is to describe facilitative leadership strategies for conference planning, implementation, and evaluation. Facilitation begins during the review of abstracts for paper presentation or plans for focused discussion groups submitted by participants. The Review Committee is charged with determining how each presentation or focused discussion group can set the stage for dialogue necessary to stimulate sharing of information within a context of assumptions, values and experiences to lead to a more common understanding of nursing education and practice in each country. Facilitation techniques are used to integrate Committee suggestions so submitters can develop written materials and their presentations or discussions to promote dialogue among the participants. Facilitation is crucial during the conference to help submitters finalize their presentations or discussions and then foster validation, reframing and reorientation of themes around the issues that are identified from the conference sessions and site visits. Lastly, facilitation must help participants evaluate their accomplishments from conference participation and end this experience with a sense of meaning. This conference cruise provides a first step for shared learning; facilitation techniques must, however, be used to continually nurture and shape dialogue for meaningful conversations to explore current realities and the issues needing to be addressed to enhance nursing. Such conversations are needed so participants from each country can learn from and help each other further nursing contribution to health care delivery.
