Title:
Global Connections Through Various Technologies Sustain a Decade of International Clinical Research Exchanges
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) This poster illustrates decade long activities including clinical nursing research and education exchanges among Scandinavian countries and a mid-American, School of Nursing. This sharing of nursing research knowledge occurred mainly through teleconferencing, Internet exchanges, social networks and policy development discussions. Based on common clinical population studies with families managing complex home care, new models of patient education were developed. Theories such as Cognitive Constructive Learning, Teacher as Facilitator, and Cooperative Learning Instruction were shared among nurses in these countries.  Interactive Internet strategies were used to develop nurses’ abilities to critique, abstract and apply evidence research findings. Outcomes from these exchanges are described and instructional strategies are explained. Positive outcomes were achieved by nurses engaging in the application of the evidence based research in clinical practice and by working on policy white papers for their countries’ departments of health. To achieve these outcomes Internet tasks were assigned with clear and repeated directions; and complex examples with increasing difficulty were given.  These assignments allowed discovery but gave the nurses exploration boundaries related to cultural interaction and the facilitated intellectual exchanges. These exchanges have resulted in the advancement of nursing science including formal courses in the European Nursing Doctoral Program on clinical trial design, population research and research abstracting. In addition, these exchanges have resulted in a new international collaborative conceptual framework and official partnerships.  These variety of exchanges facilitated nurses’ ability to become more culturally attuned and to keep up with, as well as add to, the ongoing evidence based information explosion and knowledge expansion. “Clouds computing” can be used in the future as a place for research exchanges and to share global nursing research interventions. (Smith, C.E., Perceptions from two northern latitudes:  Comparing nurses cultural patterns and norms.  Journal of Comparative Sociology, 28 (3-4), 1997: 236-244).
