[Clinical session research presentation] Global Health: Technology Facilitates Curriculum Applications for Faculty and StudentsGlobalization is a defining factor in the 21st century that presents a wide range of cultural, environmental, and ethical issues impacting local, regional, national, and international health (Bateman, Baker, Hornenborg, & Ericsson, 2001; Dickenson-Hazard, 2004).  Nurses internationally are addressing major health issues, such as environmental pollution, global warming, communicable diseases (i.e. Avian flu), and bioterrorism (Dickenson-Hazard, 2004). The presentation will discuss The Global Media Network (GMN), a university wide network, which uses internet and digital video conference technology to facilitate interactive international exchanges between faculty, students, and GMN partners around the world.  Currently, the University's GMN partners include universities in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Germany, Hong Kong, Spain, Sweden, England, Kuwait, Jordan, Palestine, Venezuela, Turkey, South Korea, China, Thailand, and Australia. Through the GMN, faculty and students explore different perspectives and ideas about nursing and healthcare, acquire information about health promotion and disease prevention in a partner country, experience diversity, and collaborate in research.  For example, the School of Nursing has collaborated with nursing faculty from a university in England via the GMN.  Outcome examples include faculty development, exploration of common research interest and grant possibilities, curriculum integration plans, and the development of an electronic globe for use across undergraduate and graduate program courses.
