Abstract:

Session presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013

Purpose: identify funding streams to support international faculty travel and realistic collaborations that build trust and generate meaningful products.

Methods: through attending the 13th International AIDS conference in Durban, South Africa in July, 2000, I was exposed to a beautiful setting being ravaged by the huge disease burden caused by the twin epidemics of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.  Motivated by the concept, Give Back to Move Forward, I have returned more than 7 times through the support of two Fulbright awards, one for six months at the University of KwaZulu Natal and a shorter one at the Durban University of Technology (DUT) which has fully provided the funding for the collaboration in 2012 and, hopefully, 2013. Initially, personal funding was used for some trips along with university support to present a paper at ICN held in Durban.

Results: products have included 1) guest lectures for pre-licensed nursing students, nurses studying for advanced education and both nursing and other faculty on a variety of topics; 2) collaborating with nursing faculty chairs and both graduate and doctoral students on research thesis; 3) collaborating with nursing faculty in the development and submission of professional articles including one published article and two in review; 4) acting as an external reviewer of nursing PhD proposals; and 5) securing partial funding to evaluate an educational intervention of a hybrid program.  The underlying goal for each of these products has been to build capacity.

Conclusion: while a sustained inter-institutional partnership is preferable, it is possible for individual faculty to develop long-standing relationships. This presentation will describe successful strategies to optimize available time through careful advance planning and the use of technologies.  The focus of the presentation will be on “lessons learned” so that others may think creatively about replication.  Leadership skills are demonstrated through role-modeling and daily interactions.
