From One End of the Earth to the Other: Building an International Partnership
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Associate Professor
An international perspective and concern for complex health care issues are an imperative for nursing scholarship and leadership in the 21st century. Until recently, little accurate information or knowledge about health care or the infrastructure that supports health care was available from behind the Iron Curtain. As the political and economic scene changes in these countries, health care concerns are coming to the forefront, presenting special challenges for health care providers within the global community. Traditionally based in a patriarchal and oppressive system, Russian nursing leaders are striving to develop professional education programs and establish collaborative and support networks to enhance professional development within their countries. The purpose of this symposium presentation is to share various experiences and strategies for establishing a partnership between academic and clinical facilities in geographically isolated areas. Building on previously established contacts between the Kazan State Medical University and the University of Texas at El Paso, a partnership is being developed to share knowledge and expertise in various aspects of nursing education. The development of a partnership between a U.S. institution and a Russian institution support the priorities established under the Gore-Primakov Commission. These priorities include: developing the capacity to train health care professionals and assisting Russian institutions and professionals in the development and implementation of quality practices. The primary focus of the partnership is to enhance nursing education, with other clinical facilities being included for support and future benefits of the program. Placed within the context of changing politics and economics, various experiences will be described from nursing education and practice perspectives. Exemplars of leadership and strategies for the development of a partnership will be highlighted. By continuing to have big dreams and courage to take the necessary small steps, individuals can make a significant impact in the global health care arena. The foundations being laid for international collaboration and support in nursing education and practice can only enlarge the arena for international scholarship and leadership.
