Building International Partnerships: It Isn't Easy to Get Things Done
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Associate Professor
An international perspective of global health care issues is an imperative for nursing leadership in the 21st century. Until recently, little accurate information or knowledge about public health problems, health care concerns, or the infrastructure that supports health care was available from behind the Iron Curtain. Traditionally based in a patriarchal and oppressive system, Russian nurses, faculty, and scholars are striving to develop professional and collaborative networks to enhance professional development and scholarship within their countries. Establishing partnerships with colleagues in the west has been one means of advancing nursing scholarship in international settings. Working with the faculty, staff, and students in the Department of Higher Nursing Education at Kazan State Medical University (Russia), a small group of American scholars are attempting to build partnerships for clinical, education, and scholarly activities. Reaching levels of mutual understanding that nursing is a transcultural discipline and profession embedded in enlightened knowledge, culturally diverse, subjective meanings of health, illness, caring, and healing practices has been but the first step toward enhancing collaborative efforts. Based on experiences as a Fulbright Scholar and continued connections with clinical and academic facilities in Russia, this presentation will include insights into health care, nursing, and scholarship in the international arena between remote areas of Russia and the U.S. The role, status, and future of projects relevant to nursing through collaborative relationships will be explored. Placed within the context of changing politics and economics, exemplars of leadership and strategies for the development of a partnership will be highlighted. The foundations being laid for international collaboration and support in nursing education and practice can only enlarge the arena for international scholarship and leadership.
