Abstract:

Session presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013

Innovative strategies to promote excellence in global nursing education and practice in 3 different countries will be presented. These initiatives involving international faculty and student collaboration could easily be replicated.

China– A long term initiative, over multiple years, that continues to the present.

The strategy began with teaching nurses and students the EBP process using questions identified by Chinese nurses. The scope expanded to preparing Chinese nurse mentors to champion EBP and bringing nurses to the university to take classes about EBP.

Indonesia– A short-term initiative.

EBP questions were solicited from STIKES nursing program in Bali. SVSU students then reviewed the literature to prepare a presentation on a question about tuberculosis. Over 1000 nurses and students attended a seminar to hear more about EBP and how to use it. The results were also shared, at the seminar and on TV and in the local newspaper.

Nepal– A formal research and EBP initiative.

SVSU and Nepal nursing students from Dhulikhel and Kathmandu replicated a study about use of traditional and complementary medicine, that was initially done on the general population of Nepal, using only nurses this time. The project was in 3 phases: (1) Contact nursing schools and hospitals to have them select Nepal nursing students to collaborate on this project; (2) Travel to Nepal to jointly collect data and analyze and discuss implications (3) Complete 2 journal articles, one for US publication and one for publication in Nepal. NOTE: No publications have yet been completed. In addition, questions were solicited from nurses in Nepal and SVSU students used the EBP process to present recommendations to Nepalese nurses while in Nepal.

With all of these projects important insights were learned that will be shared concerning the role of providers, availability of resources and interpretation of EBP in other cultures.
