University of Alabama at Birmingham Faculty to Train Nursing Students in Jamaica

The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing has partnered with the World-Health Organization Collaborating Center at the University of West Indies-Mona Campus in Kingston, Jamaica, to improve how they train nursing students.

Recently, a group of University of Alabama at Birmingham instructors traveled to Jamaica to train instructors how to teach with simulators. The instructors were also able to provide training in specialized areas, such as palliative and end-of-life care. The partnership will continue through online resources, including the UAB Nursing Network’s “Clinical Pearls” professional development videos and virtual debriefings.

“We are committed to a close partnership with UWI,” said associate professor Ada Markaki who is deputy director of the World-Health Organization Collaborating Center. “This will build support to sustain changes and optimize impact for UWI School of Nursing faculty and students. Sustainability is the key word for this partnership, which follows the school’s definition of global health and focus on the WHO’s sustainable development goals.”
