It is no secret that we live in a global society. Wound, ostomy and continence nurses work in myriad of settings with client populations that reflect global diversity. Healthcare providers and clients alike benefit from care informed by global engagement. This session will review the definitions of global health, speaker's experiences from different parts of the world, and the concept of “glocal” care (translating global knowledge and understanding at the local level).

Learner Outcome:

  • The learner will be able to apply concepts of global knowledge to address health care needs of individuals at the local level.
