The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

    adequate for the health and well-being of himself
    and of his family.
  •   UN, 1948

What is Health
  • Health is not only the absence of infirmity and
    disease but also a state of physical, mental and
    social well-being.
    WHO

International health
  • International health is a subspecialty that
    relates more to health practices, policies and
    systems...and stresses more the differences
    between countries than their commonalities.
  • The Global Health Education Consortium

    that places a priority on improving health and
    achieving equity in health for all people
    worldwide.

Nursing and global health in the internet age
  • Question What is the best tool to educate the
    global nursing workforce while utilizing fewer
    resources?
  • Answer A solution is to have a well structured 
    content written in a language that does not
    require use of any advanced technology, as
    demonstrated in the Supercourse.

10
Nursing and global health in the internet age
  • Nursing Supercourse is an important educational
    tool for bringing global health training into the
    Nursing schools and for building a nursing
    surveillance network.

11
The Supercourse Internet bringing us closer
together through learning about global health
www.pitt.edu/super1
  • THE SUPERCOURSE is a global library of lectures
    on prevention and public health, shared for free
    by the best faculty in the world.

  • Nursing Supercourse emerged from Supercourse to
    improve the global teaching of prevention.

13
Global nursing health
  • Nurses form the biggest proportions of health
    care professionals with 28 nurses and midwives
    compared to 2 physicians per 10,000 population
    (WHO, 2009)
  • Nurses are currently underutilized for global
    health and public health education.

14
Global nursing health
  • It is estimated that there are 11 million nurses
    around the world (ICN, 2000), what if there was a
    way to utilize this huge workforce for global
    disease prevention education

15
Nurses and global health
  • Nurses are known to be THE most trusted health
    professionals by public
  • Nurses address health as a continuum
  • Health promotion and prevention are the
    foundational to nursing practice

16
  • Nursing Supercourse is a global network of
    nurses. We aim to improve global health and
    prevention through collaboration. Nursing
    students are not getting adequate training in
    global health. We can change that by sharing
    lectures that are evidence based and up-to-date.
    Our lectures are driven by the global health
    trends.

the same puzzle
