Global Population Health – How Will Nursing Make A Difference?
Miriam Hirschfeld, DNSc, DS(hon.), MD(hon.)
Professor Ererita, Department of Nursing
Emek Yezreel College, Israel
The presentation shall first review our present and future health and workforce challenges within their global socio-economic and political context. I shall then present examples where nursing research and nursing practice have the potential to make a major difference to individual, family, community and population health. The discussion will focus upon the imperative of moral courage and the need for nurses to take a stand and be heard in the face of austerity, the changing world order and the numerous natural and man-made disasters. I shall raise issues as to how the above must impact upon nursing education and the directions of nursing research. Finally, I shall raise the question of whether we need a global nursing ethic to advance a common goal and whether such a nursing ethic can contain the dilemmas posed by cultural differences and the needs for cultural safety.
