Duke University School of Nursing welcomes international students representing Barbados, Netherlands, Philippines, Japan, Oman, Korea and the United Kingdom. The students join the Duke Community for a two week course - NURS555 Exploring Global Patterns of Health and Illness. International participants are joined by four DUSON students: Casey Lary, Noel Magtoto, Trinh Tran, and Eleanor Willis.
International participants met with Dean Broome upon their arrival. Other activites include a tour of Duke University Health System, culture night, a community tour to see the social determinats of health in Durham, and other oppoturnities to learn about evidence-based interventions to address common health/illness problems.
Participants will complete final presentations on Friday, August 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Clipp 1017. Participants (in groups) will propose a clinical question, search for evidence, appraise evidence, organize and synthesize the results, formulate cross-cultural interventions to address the chosen topic, and propose a population-based educational plan and deliver their final presentation on their topic.
