Online course on Primary Care in Low Resource Countries
Dear Global Nursing Colleagues,
I am sending information below about a 3-credit online course that will be offered by nursing faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in the Summer 2013 term, and that may be of interest to nurses, faculty, and students who are working, or plan to work in low-resource countries. This distance accessible course is designed for health care students and providers from all health-related disciplines who wish to learn more about delivering primary care in low resource settings. Participants will study the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of infectious and parasitic diseases throughout the global community. In addition, safety issues, nutritional deficiencies, mental health issues, and obstetric problems will be reviewed. There are no pre or co-requisites for the course, but registration requires prior approval by the course faculty (Dr. Gail Hill). Non-UAB students may register for the course as a non-degree or transient student. Students registering for undergraduate credit register for NUR 403 and those registering for graduate credit (those who already have a bachelor’s degree), register for NUR 603.
For more information please contact Dr. Gail Hill at or phone (+1 205 934 6587), OR go to the following website: http://www.uab.edu/nursing/international-affairs-home/news/1304-course-primar....
