International Nursing Internship Concluded

The International research nursing internship for nurse researchers has just been concluded at the Great Lakes University of Kisumu’s Milimani Campus. The Internship’s key mission was to build the capacity of junior nurse researchers in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean to play a leadership role in building the evidence base for health policy and practice at National, regional and global levels. The participants were from Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Jamaica, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Canada.
Canada’s University of Ottawa, Great Lakes University of Kisumu and the Jamaica based University of the West Indies took the leading role in the program. The involvement of Canadian nurses in the internship will provide opportunities for global health research collaboration and networking.
Ms Joyce Owino, the Internship Coordinator says the ten week program was very intense. “The GLUK staff and the invited guests who participated as facilitators, mentors and students hugely benefited in their various capacities” she added.

Teasdale Programme

Strengthening Nurses’ Capacity in HIV Policy Development in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean

Strengthening Nurses’ Capacity in HIV Policy Development in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean” is a three project research program funded by the International Development Research Center (IDRC), Canada.

The goal of this program is to contribute to health systems strengthening in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean by improving the quality of HIV and AIDS nursing care, supporting the scaling up of innovative HIV and AIDS programs and practices, and fostering dynamic and sustained engagement of researchers and research users in the policy development process. Data will also be used for comparative case studies across the study countries. The research uses a participatory action research methodology.

The three projects that form the program include:

1. Nursing practice for HIV prevention and AIDS care in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean
2. The interface among health system priorities, capacity building, and policy innovation in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean
3. Dynamic collaborations to strengthen health care systems for HIV and AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean

We will be conducting research with front-line nurses, nurse-managers, and decision makers in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, the two regions with the highest prevalence of HIV in the world. Specifically, we will work in five countries: Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Jamaica and Barbados.

Additionally, we have established a National Advisory Committee representing a range of stakeholders involved in HIV and AIDS issues, nursing concerns, and health policy. They will provide guidance throughout the project on the research process and assist in developing dissemination plans. “Leadership hubs” comprising front-line nurses, and managers, nurse researchers, policy makers, and community representatives will be established and will participate in identifying research priorities and conducting research.

Participants in this research project will benefit by contributing to the understanding and further development of nursing best practices for HIV prevention and AIDS care, and reflecting on workplace policies important in HIV and AIDS environments.
