In today’s world where the importance of diversity is increasingly apparent, it is critical that local, national and international partnerships be developed. In response to this need Fairfield University’s School of Nursing has recently received a grant from the Dreyfus Health Foundation to work in partnership with them and community members from the City of Bridgeport, Connecticut to promote better health for the community’s older adults using the Problem Solving for Better Health (PSBH) model. The partnership will include Fairfield University School of Nursing faculty and nursing students, Bridgeport community members and PSBH facilitators from the Dreyfus Health Foundation. Participants will be given the opportunity to engage in activities that demonstrate diverse roles and how the synergy created promotes health in older adults. Nursing students at Fairfield University will apply the model while in their senior level community gerontology course. In addition, an evaluation template has been developed and will be implemented to assess the anticipated and unanticipated outcomes of this unique partnership. An important long range goal for this partnership with Fairfield University’s School of Nursing, the Dreyfus Health Foundation and the community members of Bridgeport will be the dissemination of this innovative model to other schools of nursing. The purpose of this will be to encourage the integration of this partnership model into nursing schools curriculum. This educational approach will prepare future nurses to work collaboratively at the local, national and international level with the ultimate goal of improving the health of people around the world.
