Title:
Health Promotion Programs Among Kakuma Refugee Youth
Abstract:
Health Promotion Programs Among Kakuma Refugee Youth
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Dunlap, Ruby K., EdD
P.I. Institution Name:Belmont University
Title:Assistant Professor of Nursing
Providing health services for populations and cultural competency in their practice have become skill sets which graduates are increasingly expected to acquire during their nursing education. Population based care involves extending what the nursing student has learned about individual care to the needs of a group. Cultural competency involves learning to sense when the plan of care must be altered to fit the unique needs of the client and how that can be done. This presentation is the story of how both of these learning objectives were met through two programs designed by nursing students for Sudanese young men from the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. These young men, also known as the "Lost Boys of Sudan," have been sent to various cities in the United States as refugees. The challenges they face as a result of their experiences with civil war in Sudan, the loss of their families, and the relocation from refugee camp to urban communities in the United States have made them an especially vulnerable population. The Sudanese and the nursing students each felt they had gained the most from the health promotion programs, a tribute to the value of this kind of experience which could be replicated with many kinds of populations.
