Improving Global Communication: Moving from I Can't to I Can in the Advancement of Nursing Knowledge Using the English Language
Abstract:
Improving Global Communication: Moving from I Can't to I Can in the Advancement of Nursing Knowledge Using the English Language
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Brandi, Cheryl, DNS/DNSc/DSN
P.I. Institution Name:Aichi Medical University
Title:Instructor
Purposes: (1) To explore the challenges nurses who are non-native speakers of English face in comprehending academic presentations given by native English-speaking nurses. (2) To offer practical presentation guidelines. (3) To stimulate future dialogue on this topic. Background: In the last 4 years, there has been a proliferation of articles in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship that address the need for nursing science development to become more globally relevant. Additionally, international activities to facilitate the exchange of knowledge are steadily increasing. The assumption of this presentation is that a major barrier to information exchange is language. Inarguably, English is the international academic language of choice. However, it can be used more effectively if native English speakers modify their presentations to make them more comprehensible for their audience members. Format and Style: (1) First 55 minutes: Lecture by an international team of nurse presenters. (a) Introduce topic and briefly describe relevant concepts such parochialism and academic listening. (b) Give examples and share perspectives from nurses for whom English is a second language. (c) Offer practical presentation guidelines. (2) Last 20 minutes: Open discussion among presenters and audience members. Meets Criteria: Successful two-way communication among world nurse leaders, educators, and scholars is essential for the global advancement of nursing knowledge, collaborative international research activities, and expansion of STTI networks. The challenges (“I Can’t”) of international communication can be met (“I Can”) if native English speakers become more sensitized to the communication and cultural concerns of their audiences.
