I am searching for Open Access materials (including videos, articles, etc) for development of a Global Health Nursing Course. Can anyone recommend any resources? Thank-you so much!
Rockhopper TV has excellent videos in its "Survival" series as well as the "Saving Lives' series. Here's the website:http://www.rockhopper.tv/Michele Upvall
Hi Karen,Depending upon your audience, we at MAF make training and education filmsfor nurses and midwives in low resource settings. Although our films areaimed at sub Saharan Africa they are being used by health workers acrossthe globe.Our films are free and aimed at 2 audiences, one being skilled healthworkers and other community health workers and communities, you can see ourfull list of films available here:http://medicalaidfilms.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/MAF-ENGLISH-Film-Librar...All our films are available with voice over in French, Swahili and Somali,although our cervical cancer films will not be available in additionallanguages until later this month.Again depenant upon your audience skill set, there are other multi-mediaresources online from HealthPhone http://www.healthphone.org/ and GlobalHealth Media Project http://globalhealthmedia.org/
Apologies, I sent the last post a little too fast :-) - here is the link toour skilled health worker films to view online:http://medicalaidfilms.org/our-films/emergency-obstetric-newborn-care-skilled/You will see the other modules available to view online on the right handmenu of the website - all films are on the list that I attached in theprevious mail. I hope that these are of use.
We at Grounds for Health have developed a comprehensive course for community health promoters in Cervical Cancer Prevention. It includes a facilitators guide, a step by step written curriculum and associated image based PowerPoint and a CHP resource book. It is available in both Spanish and English in both viewing and printing formats. Every effort has been made to make it accessible culturally and in simple language. I would be happy to answer any questions about it and it is available on our website:http://groundsforhealth.org.
USAID has a Global Health eLearning Center at www.globalhealthlearning.org. Additionally, there are open access materials located in the resources section of the partners in Health website. Global Health MOOCs are available on Coursera. Lots of materials on Nursing and midwifery public health initiatives are available on the WHO website. Thre are resource links available on the Johns Hopkins Global Nursing website, including those at http://www.jhpiego.org/.That said, are there GH nursing faculty on the discussion boards who would be willing to share other curricula materials?
...and don't miss all the material on iTunes U.
Hi Karen - always an important question. You can also type "open access" in the search term on this site, then select if you want to narrow down to a specific community (ie nursing). Some of our other favorites are here, with links attached. And to others, please continue to share as this is what makes knowledge-access-go-'round. - International Journal of Africa Nursing Sciences (IJANS) - Global Health: Science and Practice - Virtual libraries: HINARI, AGORA, OARE and ARDI - Open Access for Africa libguide - Jonas Center of Nursing Excellence: Improving Healthcare Through Nursing - Virginia Henderson International Nursing Library's - The Lancet Global Health

Dear Karen - I am sharing another's magnificent work - below is a proposalfrom Mr. Alex Berland - who - with his Canadian team - have put togethersomething quite remarkable for Bangladesh - a full curricula. Please followthe links in his proposal below to learn more about their vision andpurpose:*From Mr. Alex Berland at *www.bangladeshhealthproject.com*: **Proposal to develop a "creative commons" website for BSN curriculum*Resources required*Nurse educator with curriculum development expertise*.PurposeTo develop a web-based platform that will *enable a Canadian-supportednurse education program in Bangladesh to share its curriculum materialswith other development projects.*Background (see also www.bangladeshhealthproject.com )*Bangladesh, like many other Less-Developed Countries [LDC], has a greatpotential for success in developing nurses for employment at home andabroad*. Unfortunately, nurse education in such countries often suffersfrom weak instructional capacity as well as insufficient resources. Workingwith Dhaka's International University of Business Agriculture andTechnology [IUBAT] since 2003, Canadian volunteers have launched a nursingschool. The first students graduated with Bachelor of Science in Nursing[BSN] degrees in late 2009.IUBAT is an English-medium university; the core BSN curriculum includes 20classroom courses plus associated clinical labs. All the courses are basedon *international standard content, adapted for low-resource settings*.This means addressing population health issues as well as differences insocial structure, attitudes to learning and professional values. Inaddition, the courses use a "foundation and reiteration" or "spirallearning" approach to support bright students who have weak Englishlanguage skills or poor secondary education.As the Canadian volunteers supporting this project, we have invested mucheffort to develop the BSN curriculum. Searching for resources, we found nosingle source. To our knowledge, *the content we have created is unique*.This now includes not only classroom lectures (mostly Power Pointpresentations), but also learning resource packages, assignments and exams,checklists for clinical practice, and administrative policies. Everythingis digitized - *we have created a BSN program for ESL learners that can bedelivered anywhere.*Proposed activities*We would like to make this curriculum material available to other programswith similar aims in LDCs*. In order to prevent commercial exploitation, wewant some kind of Creative Commons arrangement, with access based onpermissions. We envision several phases for the work. This request forsupport concerns just Phase 1, which would involve:1. Updating and generalizing background documentation includingphilosophy, goals and policy statements.2. Clarifying objectives in each course with explicit linkage to theoverall competencies for program graduates.3. Designing the best approach to structure the curriculum foradaptation by other users.4. Exploring options for sharing the material through Creative Commonsor similar arrangements.5. Posting the first layer of information to test interest and engagepotential users.Limited resources availableOur project is entirely self-supporting. We rely on individual donationsand receive no government funding. Except for web hosting and book-keepingservices, all funds raised are spent in Bangladesh. *We hope to find nurseeducators who will provide pro bono support for the Phase 1 work*. We thinkit likely that we can get external funding but will need help to identifypotential sources.For more information: Alex Berland
This is one of my favorite global health resources....http://www.globalhealthlearning.org/It is not focused on nursing specifically, but I feel like a lot of the content and approach is very relevant. In an academic setting, a professor could maybe assign certain modules/lessons. And the topics touch upon what I think are some of the most important global health challenges...including malaria, HIV/AIDS, perinatal care, and administrative and leadership-related topics like "HIV/AIDS surveillance" and "economic evaluation basics."
Has anyone ever heard of, or used/read, the Open Nursing Journal? I received a solicitation for submissions and wanted to learn more about it before considering. It looks like they've published one volume/year since 2007. Thank you, in advance, for any opinions.
