HealthNet News Nursing: Coming June 2005, subscribe now!
Over the past year, SATELLIFE has engaged in a consultative
process with nurses in Tanzania and conducted a survey of their
information needs. Nurses in other countries in Africa, current
subscribers of our HealthNet News series of three newsletters,
also provided their input. Based on this feedback, SATELLIFE, in
collaboration with the MGH Institute of Health Professions, a
graduate school affiliated with the Massachusetts General Hospi-
tal, will launch HealthNet News-Nursing, dedicated to nurses in
Africa and other resource-constrained countries.
HealthNet News Nursing, sent monthly, aims to provide rele-
vant, reliable information that can help nurses in patient care,
administration, leadership skills, and project planning and man-
agement. Knowledgeable nursing professionals will select content
from nursing journals to support the on-going development of
nursing skills based on medical and health knowledge. Contribut-
ing authors from the MGH Institute of Health Professions, under
the editorship of Inge B. Corless, RN PhD FAAN Professor, will
also write articles for the newsletter with special attention
being paid to the resource-constraints under which nurses work
and care for patients in Africa.
Freely available to nurses and health practitioners in low-
income countries, HealthNet News-Nursing will be distributed via
email. Given the alarming trends in the brain drain of nurses in
Africa, as well as the toll of HIV/AIDS, we hope that HealthNet
News Nursing will provide continuing educational support to
those nurses who remain working under difficult circumstances.
SATELLIFE's (http://www.healthnet.org/) mission is to serve the
urgent health information needs of the world's poorest countries
through the innovative use of information technology. The MGH
Institute of Health Professions (http://www.mghihp.edu/) is an
interdisciplinary graduate school that integrates classroom
learning with research and clinical experience to prepare
skilled health care specialists.
If you are nurse or health practitioner in the developing world
and would like to subscribe to HealthNet News-Nursing, free of
charge, please mailto:email@example.com
Please share this invitation widely with nurses who might be in-
terested thank you!
