Abstract:
Professional Links: Evidence-based Outcomes of an International Program of Collaborative Research and Clinical Exchange
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001
Author:Casey, Donna
Objectives: 1. The attendee will be able to describe the model of an international program of scholarly exchange and collaborative research directed at improving global maternal-child health. 2. The attendee will be able to describe and discuss five examples of applicable evidence-based outcomes resulting from this international program. Aim: To present the model and measurable outcomes of an international program involved in the successful exchange of nursing knowledge and collaborative research in order to improve global maternal-child health and support the survival of professional interaction and clinical scholarship through collaboration and transfer of knowledge. A review of current literature reveals that health problems are remarkably similar the world over. Further, achieving optimal health outcomes more efficiently and cost effectively has become a focus of health care providers worldwide. And, although issues are complex, collective strategies can improve health outcomes. Nursing must share in this responsibility by establishing collaborative working relationships with local, national, and international colleagues to seek joint solutions to common problems. The international program, "Professional Links", was established to foster such collaboration among professional nurses and other professional health care providers in pediatric settings across the globe. The program generates the exchange of ideas and innovations between centers of health care excellence and perpetuates sharing, learning, and research, for the purpose of accomplishing optimal pediatric health at a global level. Five program components have established the foundation for research by program members: 1] Senior nursing student role-transition exchanges between international pediatric centers of excellence, 2] Long-term exchanges by advanced practice nurses between international neonatal intensive care units and pediatric intensive care units to share and implement outcomes of evidence-based nursing practice, 3] Exchanges by non-nursing health care professionals such as pastoral care, social service, and child-life specialists between two international hospitals and maternal-child community resources, 4] Establishment of scholarly exchange between global academic centers of excellence, and 5] Clinical exchange and research collaboration between adolescent clinics of two nations with a focus on prevention of teen-pregnancy and substance abuse. The program model and its evidenced-based outcomes will be presented for the purpose of sharing evidence-based outcomes and encouraging others across the world to emulate the program and share in the successes.
