4425.0 Partnering with communities in health promotion practice and research

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
This session will discuss factors that facilitate and hinder collaborating with communities for health promotion activities. Nurse educators have partnered with community organizations to provide learning experiences for students, partnered with patients to empower them to take a more active role in health care decision making, and partnered with communities to implement policy initiatives.
Session Objectives: After the session, participants will be able to discuss the educational and practice benefits of interprofessional collaboration, describe how student nurses can provide health promotion and preventive health services to underserved populations, evaluate the outcomes and processes of one shared decision making project, and identify at least three ways in which photovoice might be used to advance public health nursing practice and policy initiatives.
